About Us

Be-Wild-NY_Final_black90-512

We are individuals and organizations who love nature and are willing to stand up for the protection of clean water, wildlife and wilderness. We are proud of New York’s century-long heritage of “forever wild” public land protection in the Adirondack Park. We support wild lands that are open to all people. We also recognize that motor-vehicle access into and across wild places can bring noise, pollution and destructive invasive species.

We want the state to create an expanded motor-free Adirondack High Peaks Wilderness, a national jewel with new Wilderness protection for 30,000+ acres including the Boreas Ponds and McIntyre tracts, and the headwaters of the Hudson River.  This will result in more than 280,000 acres of contiguous Wilderness.

Thanks for Standing Up for Wilderness!
