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.
