By now you know the Adirondack Explorer is publishing news daily, not just every two months.
In addition to the solid reporting and interesting features you’ve come to expect in our bi-monthly magazine, we’ve made it a priority to put more resources into stories we’re publishing online.
To put some numbers on it, we give you nearly 500 stories to read on our website each year, and even more photos. We send out 12 email newsletters each week, (1 daily and 5 weekly ones) with links to more information about the Adirondacks. And on top of all that, we post event notices and commentary 3-4 times a day to this site, where readers from both inside and outside the region join a wide range of conversations about everything Adirondack.
Each of those stories takes time and effort to produce. And we make them available to everyone, every day.
If you value the news and services we provide, would you take a minute to share your support by making a donation?
While we are proud of all the work of our staff reporters and freelance contributors, a few highlights stand out:
Climate: Over the next two years, the Explorer will focus its climate change coverage on the Adirondack Park as a critical region for migrating species and carbon sequestration.
Watchdog reporting: We’ve kept tabs on legislation and promises from the state to move on invasive species and road salt.
Policy and water: We are the only media outlet in Northern NY to have dedicated staff reporters covering Adirondack policy and water quality.
Communities: This summer we embarked on an Adirondack Listening Tour around the park, visiting Stewart’s shops to talk to people about their communities. We plan to take what we’ve learned and turn it into better informed stories for you.
If you have read, commented or shared any of our stories or newsletters in recent months, can you chip in to help us keep the momentum going?
Now through July 31, we are working to raise $50,000, which will be matched by generous gifts from our board members.
We’re almost there! If you haven’t given yet, your gift could push us over the goal line. A special thanks to those of you who have already made a donation, we are grateful for your support.
