Protect the Adirondacks is involved in a great range of issues across the Adirondacks. The links below enumerate the public comments that PROTECT has submitted over the last several years as well as our press releases. PROTECT writes about the major issues facing the Adirondack Park in our Adirondack Issues Blog posts. These contain information, background, and policy concerns about a range of current issues.
Right now, Protect the Adirondacks is working on overuse and improving the management of the High Peaks Wilderness area, legal action to force state agencies to comply with Article 14, the forever wild clause, in the NYS Constitution, on expanding on the findings of our landmark report The Adirondack Park and Rural America: Economic and Population Trends 1970-2010, and on reforming the Adirondack Park Agency Act to require conservation design standards in the review and approval of all major subdivisions. We’re pushing for a mandatory boat control law for the Adirondack Park to require that all boats that use Adirondack waters are inspected and free of harmful aquatic invasive species and we’re working to stop road slat pollution of Adirondack lakes. We’re also making a major push to convert the 55-mile Saratoga to North Creek Railway into a new public recreation way.
