The outdoors can be a space that, while open to all, can feel intimidating and inaccessible to many. At Guide ADK, we believe in working toward a world where the barriers to entry to wild spaces are lessened, and where those who’ve felt like the wilderness isn’t for them can find a sense of belonging. That is why we commit not simply to support other non-profit organizations with shared goals in a financial capacity, but to also involve ourselves in community based actions that are in line with the values of creating equitable spaces within the outdoor communities of the Adirondacks.
We are very excited to share more details about this mission soon, though we do ask for grace and patience as we get our feet under us as a new guiding service! If you or someone you know would like to partner with us in this capacity as we get started, please reach out. We would LOVE to hear from you!
