The Adirondack Council does a great job covering so many issues that impact the Park - air pollution, water quality, land protection. I love this place and appreciate the Council's dedication to the Adirondacks.

I have been going to the Adirondacks for spiritual renewal for many years. The beauty there is spellbinding and there is no other place in the world like it. The Adirondack Council is an organization that protects the park and works to preserve its breathtaking beauty for ours and future generations. The fight is constant and ongoing and extremely difficult. The people in this organization have brought many diverse groups of people together to work toward a common goal and have demonstrated their skill repeatedly with many successes. But NY State is now in financial turmoil due to mismanagement and political battles. The Adirondack Coucil is using all of their collective intelligence and talent but the park is in great danger. Please take a look at their history and accomplishments. Please write to your public officials and donate. They are keeping this treasure vibrant and wild for all of us.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The beauty of places still wild that would otherwise be stripped of their power to heal and restore the human spirit, to inspire all visitors with the knowledge that wilderness and human communities can co-exist and thrive together.

The Adirondack Council has been advocating for the park for 30+ years, advocating for acid rain legislation when politicians and business denied its existence, pushing for legislation to protect water quality, and working to assure that funds are available for state land purchases. All of this has been done with consistency and effectiveness. They advocate with the backing of knowledge and information. As a resident of the park, I shudder to think of what the Adirondacks would look like without the steady influence the Council. For every major decision that is made that could profoundly impact the park, and there have been many, the Council has served as an appropriate and rational balance to the influences that could damage the park environment.

The Great!
