AdkAction.org, established in 2011 by a group of local residents, is celebrating its 5th anniversary and has hired a new full-time Executive Director. According to an announcement sent to the press, the organization’s core mission is “getting things done for the Adirondacks by taking on non-partisan projects with widespread support that will benefit both permanent and seasonal residents.” Originally formed over property assessments, the group has since worked on Monarch butterfly preservation, a park-wide arts symposium, road salt and stream monitoring, and more.
AdkAction.org’s new Executive Director is Brittany Christenson, formerly the administrator of the Fledgling Crow farm in Keeseville. While with Fledgling Crow, she managed packing and logistics while overseeing a staff of up to 20 seasonal employees. She received her BA in mathematics from Carroll College in Helena, Montana and also has experience in marketing, social media development, publicity, and website development.
AdkAction.org will celebrate its 5th Anniversary at its annual membership meeting/party at Heaven Hill Farm on Thursday, July 21, 5-7:30 pm. For more information about the organization click here.
