Adirondack Council leader leaving

Brian L. Houseal is leaving the Adirondack Council after a decade as the conservation organization's executive director.

Houseal will remain at his post until the end of October. Council Chairwoman Ann Carmel said Deputy Director Diane Fish will take over temporarily while the board conducts a national search for a new executive director.

"The council has been privileged to have Brian Houseal as our executive director for the last 10 years," Carmel said in a statement released Thursday. "He has exhibited leadership and innovation on so many issues affecting the environment and the communities of the Adirondack Park."

"He understands how the pieces fit together for both wilderness and communities and has nurtured the essential interdependence between them," said former board chairman Brian Ruder.

The Adirondack Council is a privately funded, nonprofit organization dedicated to ensuring the ecological integrity and wild character of the Adirondack Park.
