Adirondack Council
April 7, 2009

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!

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

my interactions with the natural environmnt of the Adirondacks. I also hear and read about their influence in the news.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

build a more visible central office.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

receiving updates that appropriately balance specific details with general information.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

engaging, professional, and knowledgeable.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

continue to do what it does and possibly expand its direct influence throughout the park.

Ways to make it better...

I had more money to give.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the current economy and visibility.
