What We Do

Protect the Adirondacks works to defend and preserve wilderness and wild areas across the Adirondacks, through grassroots organizing, legal action, research, education, and independent public oversight of state and local governments and agencies.

A grassroots approach that initiates change from the bottom up. We believe that environmental leaders continue to rely far too heavily on an old top-down model that involves pleading with our elected officials and then hoping that change gets handed down to us by our government. This decade and those to follow will demand far more from those of us on the ground if we are to succeed in protecting the woods and the waters that we cherish.
