Who We Are:
A Message From Our President:

Although our organization has its roots deep in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York, the scope of our concern is global and covers the oceans as well as the mountains of this very fragile planet. Today, one of our most fragile bodies of water, the Gulf Of mexico, is being threatened by an unprecedented oil spill that has yet to be contained.

Our history is tied to the formation of the 6 million acre Adirondack park and the great experiment in conservation this effort represents.

The New York State legislature initiated legislation in 1885 which would ultimately lead to the creation of the Adirondack State Forest Preserve in upstate New York.
This remarkable achievement led to the establishment of a 6 million acre "Forever Wild" preserve (the Adirondack Park) which today is larger than all of Yellowstone, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Great Smokey and the Everglades National Parks combined.

Today, we call this park our home and we live and breathe the natural beauty of the Adirondacks 365 days a year!
As concerned citizens of this remarkable preserve we are individually and collectively responsible for its continued protection and conservation.

Like all great parks, the Adirondacks represent a microcosm and mirror image of the worlds ecosystem.
Our ability to successfully manage and protect this unique environment on a local level reflects to what degree we can succeed on a global scale.

In this respect, regardless of who you are or where you live, the earth is our shared park and its destiny depends on you.

We must now all become conservationists with a shared mission to save this planet.
