ADKX Announces the 2023 Harold K. Hochschild Award Recipient

The 2023 award recipient is conservationist and philanthropist Edward McNeil

This award, given annually to a different recipient, is dedicated to the memory of the museum’s founder, whose passion for the Adirondacks, its people, and environment inspired him to create the museum and establish the Adirondack Park Agency (APA).

Mr. McNeil is an avid explorer, videographer, and philanthropist, devoted to wildlands science and the Adirondacks. Over the past 30 years, he has devoted his life to conservation and deepening our understanding of conservation science through his leadership and collaboration with many Adirondack organizations.

The Adirondack Experience, The Museum on Blue Mountain Lake (ADKX) will be celebrating their annual Benefit Gala & Harold K. Hochschild Award ceremony on Saturday, July 29 from 6 to 9pm, under the stars at their museum in the heart of the Adirondacks. This yearly celebration and fundraiser highlights the organization’s accomplishments and achievements, as well as honors the Harold K. Hochschild Award recipient.
