Taking Stock of Housing

November 1, 2023

9:00 am - 11:00 am

An event lead by Adirondack Explorer at The Wild Center

This summer, Adirondack Explorer launched a series that shows how Adirondack housing issues are connected to other community challenges. As part of the reporting, the articles also highlight efforts underway to offer potential solutions.

Adirondack Explorer’s “Taking Stock of Housing” series is wrapping with an event, comprised of individuals and organizations doing housing work across the region. Connect with others who care deeply about how to fix this problem, while we ask “what’s next” for how to get there.

Event highlights include:

  • A panel discussion with stakeholders from around the region, highlighting successful Adirondack projects being planned and implemented.
  • Hear from the people working toward housing solutions for the park:
    Lori Bellingham, vice president of community impact, Adirondack Foundation
