Review for Adirondack Mountain Club, Inc., Lake George, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a member of ADK for many years and involved in its leadership for several. This is a unique organization in many ways,not the least of which is that it is member directed. It has been able to blend its roles of environmental education and advocacy with an extensive program involving members in recreational and volunteer work projects. Over the years, I have been able to participate in activities as diverse as canoe outings, trail building and outdoor eduacation programs for local school children. ADK has a network of chapters thoughout the state who further its goals through involvement in issues relevant to their particular area. The organization also maintains two lodges in the Adirondacks where it helps the public enjoy their public lands in a safe and environmently friendly way. We try to teach by doing; maintaining trails, supporting our "summit steward"program or promoting green technology at our own property. In short, ADK is a great organization for people who love the outdoors and are concerned with its preservation to work with other people to achieve these goals
