Reading New York: History Meets Conservation

New York State has been at the forefront of historical and environmental movements that have blazed a trail for change and progress across the country. New Yorkers have access to that cultural heritage via two award-winning magazines published by state agencies whose work has been instrumental in creating a record of that progress.

Join New York Archives Editor Josie Madison and The Conservationist Managing Editor Maria VanWie for a conversation about these two publications highlighting the state’s history and environment and the role they play in understanding and celebrating its legacy.
