Dr. Gary Chilson Recognized

At the 15th Annual Conference on the Adirondacks, Adirondack Research Consortium (ARC) Board Member Gary Chilson was honored by the organization for his fourteen years of hard work and dedication in founding and serving as editor of the Adirondack Journal of Environmental Studies (AJES). Under Gary’s leadership, AJES has become a widely respected publication which has remained true to its search for common ground and spirit of open dialogue. The views and articles it contains, have remained inclusive with a broad perspective about important issues concerning the Adirondacks and Northern Forest.

In the photograph above, ARC President Liz Thorndike (seated farthest to the right) thanks Gary and presents him with a plaque memorializing his achievements and significant contributions to the ARC during the Annual Membership Meeting held at the Crowne Plaza Resort and Golf Club in Lake Placid on May 22, 2008.
