Conservation Advocacy

The Conservation Advocacy Committee is the nerve center of PROTECT. It’s where groups of volunteer professionals with a range of experience from all over the Park gather together to recommend public policy positions to the board for adoption. Those same volunteers then help implement a broad spectrum of policy initiatives centered around the activities of the Department of Environmental Conservation and its management and acquisition of the New York State Forest Preserve, the activities of the Adirondack Park Agency including its regulation of private land development and governing of the State Land Use Plan, positions on legislation before the State Legislature, issues before the Governor and all other executive agencies that impact the Adirondack Park.  Here’s how you can volunteer to help.
