For anyone interested in keeping informed about the Adirondacks, and to read what journalists and historians have been writing, there are several excellent resources online that I recommend. I am particularly interested in history and politics, and am delighted to have recently become a contributing writer for two of these websites.
My two favorite Adirondack websites are:
The Adirondack Almanack was founded by John Warren in 2005, who describes himself as a print journalist, a documentary television producer, and a teacher of documentary studies and new media at Burlington College. The website includes articles under the following headings: Natural History, Outdoor Recreation, History and Culture, Local Politics, Land Use and Development, Environment and Climate, & Food and Farming.
Adirondack Wild: Friends of the Forest Preserve is operated by four partners: Peter Brinkley, David Gibson, Dan Plumley, and Ken Rimany. Their mission: To advance NY’s Forever Wild legacy and Forest Preserve policies in the Adirondack and Catskill Parks, and promote public and private land stewardship that is consistent with wild land values through education, advocacy and research
