My Adirondacks

Adirondack Life has published stories about kids, but from adult perspectives. Now it’s their turn. It’s time to know what kids see and feel when they experience this place. That’s why Adirondack Life and our friends at Adirondack Land Trust (ALT)—a nonprofit that conserves forests, farmlands, waters and wild places—have teamed up to create My Adirondacks, a project for kids to photograph an aspect of the natural world within the Blue Line and tell us why it matters to them. We’ll share these interpretations in a future issue of Adirondack Life as well as on Adirondack Life and ALT’s social media outlets. Rules: Adirondack Life and Adirondack Land Trust invite kids, ages 5 to 17, to photograph an aspect of the natural world within the Adirondack Park and tell us why it matters to them. Submissions are accepted now through August 19, 2023. Submissions require: Name and age. Where, exactly, in the Adirondack Park the photograph was taken. Up to a few sentences about why the image matters to you. Email entries to aledit@adirondacklife.com.
