The Adirondack Stewardship Project

The Adirondack Stewardship Program provides Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification for qualifying forests and wood procuring businesses. We work carefully with enrolled forestland owners to assist in marketing certified resources, from timber to carbon credits, at their highest capacity and aid with the continuing management and stewardship of forests in the Adirondack Park.  Click here for more information

Adirondack Lake Assessment Project

Now entering its 14th year, ALAP, the Adirondack Lake Assessment Project, is the largest, most professional, volunteer-driven water quality monitoring program in the Adirondack Park. ALAP is a partnership between PROTECT, the Adirondack Watershed Institute at Paul Smith’s College (AWI), and project sponsors and lake monitors. ALAP was established to help develop a comprehensive and up-to-date database of water quality conditions in the Park.  Click here for more information
