At the Adirondack Explorer (which runs the Adirondack Almanack), we’re committed to producing fact-based, watchdog journalism in the public interest. We gather facts and dig deep in the pursuit of truth about what’s happening in our beloved Adirondack Park–in the forests, waters and in our communities.
Our watchdog reporting keeps readers like you on top of the issues that matter most, like clean water. Just this past week, our newest reporter, Zach Matson, revealed that another harmful algal bloom was found on Lake George in October, though the information wasn’t shared widely with the public at the time.
Zach has also been following plans to regulate septic systems on Lake George, efforts to keep invasive species out of our lakes and communities’ struggles with road salt pollution. Without the generosity of our readers, these stories never would have been told. And in today’s climate of misinformation we can’t afford to let things like this fall through the cracks.
We’re also a nonprofit.
That means we depend on the support of readers like you to keep us going.
