20th Anniversary of Summit Stewards in Adirondacks

A report on earth day in the Adirondacks has this item:

Since 1990, summit stewards have worked the Adirondack High Peaks, educating visitors about the rare alpine ecosystem that is found on only 16 of the highest peaks in the state. During the peak hiking season, summit stewards provide full time coverage on Mount Marcy and Algonquin, the highest peaks in the state. Summit stewards spend time talking to hikers on other Adirondack High Peak summits such as Mount Colden and Wright Peak.
