To ensure the ecological integrity and wild character of the Adirondack Park for current and future generations.
Many of the issues the Adirondack Council confronts in its role as lead defender of the Adirondack Park have national and international impact, especially acid rain and global climate change. The Council's advocacy efforts are also focused on current threats specific to the ecology and wild character of the Adirondacks including shoreline development and water degradation, the fragmentation of large blocks of working forest lands, use of motor vehicles in wild areas, and proposals to build telecommunications towers on ridgelines and open agricultural lands. The Adirondack Council works with other organizations and state agencies to secure state and federal funding for conservation, environmental projects, and community revitalization.
Where We Work
What We Do
The Adirondack Council is the largest citizen environmental group in New York State working full-time, on a daily basis in the Adirondack Park, in the state capital and in Washington to preserve this six-million-acre treasure. "The Adirondack Council inspires public participation in policy debates by advocating for positive solutions to complex issues for the benefit of the Park and its people."
