  • April 9: Trolleys, Trails, and (Maybe) Sand Lake, Too! Public historian and heritage tourism expert Matt Kierstead of Milestone Heritage Consulting will present an illustrated talk on the Albany Hudson Electric Trail (part of the Empire State Trail) and how rail trails can transform communities.
