Give Back to the Adirondacks and Double Your Impact

The Adirondack Park is enjoying the results of successful advocacy for natural resource protection and community resilience. There is much-shared success to celebrate, but we need to advocate continually, insisting that government does their part to ensure the Adirondacks receive world-class management and care for the benefit of the Park’s wilderness, wildlife and communities.  

Your support and commitment to the Adirondacks strengthens our collective voice and impact. Please consider a special year-end contribution to help preserve the water, air and wildlands of the Adirondacks. All gifts received by December 31st will be matched 1:1 up to $80,000 by generous advocates for the Adirondack Park.  

The success and popularity the Adirondacks enjoy is now one of our biggest challenges.  

  • Overuse is harming wilderness, wildlife and communities.  

We can all enjoy thriving communities and preserve the water, air and wildlands in the Adirondack Park. Through our ongoing efforts to engage diverse interests and work together, the Adirondack Park and its unique combination of private and public lands can be protected for generations to come.  

Together, we can face new challenges and continue to be an ever-improving world model of people and nature thriving together.
