First published in 1998, the Adirondack Explorer is a nonprofit, bimonthly magazine dedicated to promoting wise use, greater public enjoyment and lasting protection of the Adirondack Park.
Six issues a year cover the people, places and politics of the region with a special emphasis on the Park’s wildlife, natural attributes, conservation needs and recreational opportunities. Every issue includes several narratives about excursions you and your family can take in the Park.
In addition, subscribers receive the Annual Outings Guide a yearly collection of the best excursion stories from the Explorer, to help you plan your own Adirondack adventures.
The magazine is available in digital form as well as traditional print, with the vivid presentation and exclusive features of your iPad and Android mobile devices as well as desktop computers. The banner link at the bottom of this page will take you to sample editions of both print and digital editions. You may also check out the sample stories displayed below.
The Explorer offers daily blogs and news links on this site and at our partner, the on-line journal AdirondackAlmanack.com.
As a nonprofit, the Explorer relies on tax-deductible contributions from supporters as well as subscription and advertising revenue. Without this help from our readers we wouldn’t be able to bring you this publication.
