The award-winning Adirondack Explorer magazine continues to evolve. We’ve been expanding and growing our investigative and science reporting, putting a focus on community issues and including range of outdoor adventures.
FIVE REASONS TO SUBSCRIBE:
MORE COVERAGE: With freelance writers and sources in almost all corners of the park, the Explorer has been able to get to more stories and represent more communities than ever before. Check out daily updates to our website!
SEEKING SOLUTIONS: The Explorer launched the Solutions Reporting Project, reaching outside the region to identify models and ideas for addressing use of some of the busiest places in the High Peaks region. (Check out the recording of an event we held this summer with Adirondack Mountain Club)
WATCHDOG REPORTING: Policy Reporter Gwendolyn Craig is keeping close watch over the Adirondack Park Agency (APA) and the fulfillment of its charge to make decisions about development of private lands in keeping with the Adirondack Park Land Use Development Plan.
KEEPING TRACK OF WATER ISSUES: Water Reporter Zach Matson helps readers understand the flow of federal and state money to towns and villages plagued with antiquated sewer and water systems. And he was the first to report how a plan to control one invasive aquatic species may only further endanger the health of lakes.
COMMUNITY MATTERS: The Explorer’s community reporting continues to examine ongoing issues at the center of the economic health of the region—lack of housing and some of the solutions being implemented; broadband access; efforts to add childcare options in the region; and how local businesses are affected by labor shortages, to name a few.
