Adirondack Travel Summit Seeks to Support Diversity in the Park
With its rugged mountains and wild waterways, the Adirondacks have long been a tourism destination for those seeking to explore this grand landscape. From the Great Camps, to rugged lean-tos, rustic adventures have defined the Adirondack experience for generations. And while the story of tourism in the Adirondacks is one to celebrate, the realities around class and wealth and racial disparity are more complicated chapters that need more attention. So it was great to see the Adirondack Diversity Initiative(ADI) team up with the Travel Unity organization to bring their Annual Summit on Diversity in Tourism to the Adirondack villages of Lake Placid and Tupper Lake this past October.

It has been a critical year in Adirondack conservation.
