Adirondack Explorer reports on the intersections between the natural world and the built environment, through the lens of the unique 6-million acre Adirondack Park in Northern New York State. Topics include: environment, communities, recreation.
Our reporters dig deeply into the issues on which the future of the park rests—the impact of climate change on our ecosystem, the challenges of keeping our waters clean and our wilderness areas wild, and the health and economic vitality of Adirondack communities. Our recreation stories provide ideas for enjoying this special place with hikes, paddles, skis, fishing and bicycling.
Through its website, magazine, newsletters and social channels, Adirondack Explorer reaches millions of readers –located both inside and outside the region– who care about environmental issues, Adirondack communities and recreation opportunities in this unique part of Northern New York State.
Adirondack Explorer was founded in 1998 as a print magazine. We produce six issues a year, along with an annual outings guide. (Click here to subscribe).
As a nonprofit, the Explorer relies on tax-deductible contributions from supporters to help cover these issues that matter. Without this help from our readers we wouldn’t be able to bring you this publication. Click here to support our work.
