Bringing together researchers and decision makers to help sustain a healthy Adirondack Park and grow a vibrant regional economy.
The Need for Research-Based Knowledge of the Adirondacks
The Adirondack Research Consortium (ARC) was founded to bring together scientists from research organizations and people who work to make the Park a better place, such as business owners, local and State governments, private land managers, farmers, foresters, teachers, and interested citizens. We partner researchers with decision-makers to make sure good science is being used to answer real questions.
We foster these collaborations through our Annual Conference, various events throughout the year, and through publication of the peer-reviewed Adirondack Journal of Environmental Studies (AJES). Through these collaborative initiatives, the Adirondack community as a whole can move forward on actions that promote and sustain a vibrant regional economy and a healthy environment.
