Adirondack Explorer

Project Size: $100,000

Grant Amounts: $15,000 (2015-2018)

Strategic Value: The Explorer is the true Adirondack-wide source of serious reporting. Unlike Adirondack Life that is a glossy, feel-good, coffee table book, the Explorer takes on cutting edge issues like road salt pollution, APA reform, rail-to-recreation conversions, and much more. Our grants have helped the Explorer repurpose its material into the recently acquired Adirondack Almanack and into pocket-sized guides for hiking and canoeing.

Grant Analysis: This has been a success. Our funding has helped the Explorer recruit its last two publishers, expand its reportage, and broaden its distribution.
