Adirondack Council hires director


The new conservation director begins work alongside the council’s new executive director, Willie Janeway, who cited Aguirre’s Park Service experience as an asset for “fresh perspective.”

Janeway takes the helm in May.


The Adirondack Council’s most recent 990 form, from 2011, posted on the Foundation Center’s website at, shows former Executive Director Brian Houseal was the group’s highest-paid employee with reportable compensation of $154,126 at 40 hours per week, plus more than $9,000 in other compensation.

The council reported total assets that year at $2.5 million, with gifts, grants, membership and contributions of $1.3 million.

Total expenditures to influence government in 2011 were reported at $20,362 to lobby New York state lawmakers and the governor on 11 subjects: the Forest Preserve, timber constitutional amendment, Raquette Lake water amendment, Township 40 constitutional amendment, invasive-species control, the Adirondack Park Agency, mercury thermostats, global warming, APA reform, utility vehicles, and feral pigs.
