Adirondacks For All

Mountain Lake PBS is proud to announce the premiere of “Adirondacks for All,” a thought-provoking documentary that delves into the history of diversity in the Adirondack Park.

Produced by Paul Frederick and co-produced by Erik Reardon, “Adirondacks for All” urges us to reflect on our region’s past by amplifying narratives that are often overlooked, and invites us to consider the insights these stories offer as we envision the future of the Adirondacks.

From the enduring connection of the Mohawk people to the pursuit of racial justice by pre-Civil War Black settlers, from the often-overlooked role of women in conservation to the complex relationship between the pristine wilderness and issues of incarceration, “Adirondacks For All” offers a fresh perspective on the region’s environmental and social tapestry.
