ADK Launches ADK Voices Project 

ADK Launches ADK Voices Project 

September 19, 2022 — Lake Placid, NY — As ADK celebrates its centennial anniversary, the organization has launched an online oral history project called ADK Voices in partnership with Our Story Bridge. Told from the perspective of ADK supporters, the project details the organization’s rich history and notable impact on New York’s public lands and waters. 

“Over the last century, ADK has helped millions of people connect with the outdoors. ADK Voices speaks to that impact and captures the spirit of the community that has grown around our stewardship and education efforts,” said Michael Barrett, ADK Executive Director. “I invite anyone who has a connection to ADK to share their story with us through this project.” 

Though the website has launched, the story collection process continues. To date, the project has 30 recorded narratives, including stories about the life of a summit steward, how Johns Brook Lodge survived the pandemic lockdown, and a brief history of the Bouquet River Lodge, former basecamp for the Schenectady Chapter. 

Recorded stories are now available at adkvoices.org. To contribute to the project, contact adkvoices1@gmail.com.
