VIDEO: Living in Harmony with Wilderness | Adirondack Park

By: Mary Godnick - Adirondack Council Marketing and Fund Development Assistant

The Adirondack Park is a six-million-acre gem in Upstate New York. It's about the size of Vermont, and three times larger than Yellowstone National Park. It's a mix of public and private land with New York's tallest mountains, wildest forests, and cleanest lakes and rivers.

The Adirondack Park is a safe haven for wildlife, helps mitigate climate change, and filters our air and water.

It's also the birthplace of the American "vacation," hosts 105 towns and villages and is home to over 130,000 permanent and 200,000 seasonal residents, and 10 million visitors yearly.

The Adirondack Park is an example of how people and wildlands can thrive together. Let's keep it Forever Wild, and work together to protect Adirondack wildlands and waters, forever.

How you can help #KeepItWild:

1.) Share photos of you in the Adirondacks with the hashtag #KeepItWild.

2.) Sign up for email updates to learn how you can help the Adirondacks.

3.) Sign the petition to protect Adirondack wilderness and waters from overuse.

4.) Learn more about Leave No Trace and how you can be a good steward to our wildlands.
