Virtual symposium continues dialogues about racial and environmental justice

October, 2022

The Adirondack Experience announced that it will present a three-part symposium in November as part of its Adirondacks for All: Identity & Environmental Justice in the North Country programmatic initiative.

Adirondacks for All launched in June with eight virtual events that explored experiences of inequity and oppression in the Adirondacks and the ways in which those realities connect with issues of preservation, pollution, and access to land, water and nature more broadly.

The initiative is organized by Erik Reardon, a professor and scholar whose work has focused on environmental history and Native American histories, in collaboration with ADKX leadership and in partnership with Adirondack Diversity Initiative, The Wild Center and the Nature Conservancy. The series featured a wide range of speakers with varying backgrounds, perspectives and expertise, and is part of ADKX’s broader commitment to engage new voices, ideas and communities with the museum and the region.
