Briefly Describe Your Role at The Council

My role as Director of Strategic Initiatives and Engagement is to elevate the great work already happening here at the Council. I have the privilege of working with our dedicated team, board and partners to help lead the upcoming 50th anniversary celebration (join us in 2025!) and the implementation of the VISION 2050 plan.

Elizabeth RogersIt's 5:00 on a Friday and you're leaving the office for the weekend. Where are you going, what are you doing? 
I’m headed home to my family. If the weather allows, we’ll be dining al fresco, soaking in the beauty of the Champlain Valley. Weekends are a time for us to get outdoors together. What that looks like is shaped as much by the season as it is by the kind of snacks we pack for our little ones. (Pro tip: a small package of M&M’s goes a long way in keeping little hikers happy!)

Too often the stories we tell about the Adirondacks focus on outdoor recreation alone. In the patchwork of public and private lands that make up the Park, the largest contiguous protected area in the United States, there are untold opportunities to explore the region’s natural and cultural heritage in ways that are accessible to all and require no special equipment or gear.

What is most meaningful to me is not a singular issue but rather the scope of the Adirondack Council’s work. A seemingly small victory can be a big win for the health of our natural systems for years to come. The Council’s accomplishments will have an impact across the Park and across generations – and it’s the potential for that kind of reach that means the most to me.
