Every dollar counts

coins

Money jar filled with American currency. Savings and donations concept.

We’re living in a time when you think a little longer about every dollar you spend—cutting out some of the extras in order to fill the gas tank. We hope you still see value in the work we’re doing with the Adirondack Explorer and our community forum on the Adirondack Almanack,  to bring you news you need about the Adirondack Park.

Our dedicated journalists work hard to bring you comprehensive coverage of the Adirondack Park, from stories about its spectacular natural beauty and inspiring outdoor adventures, to information about the threats and opportunities facing its wildlife, fresh water, and rural communities. Tracking and reporting on policy decisions that impact all of these irreplaceable assets is central to our mission—and it costs money to produce.

Will you help us keep the momentum going?
