Protect the Adirondacks is deeply grateful for all the support from people around New York who have stood up for Forever Wild. This is no small feat in this day and age. Proposition 5 is a raw deal for the people of the State of New York and our Constitutionally protected “forever wild” Forest Preserve, and sets a terrible precedent for future efforts to sell parts of the Forest Preserve.
Today is the day of decision. Today we vote.
