Protect the Adirondack Forest Preserve from ATV Misuse!

Take Action to preserve water, wildlands and wildlife

With recent political changes in the New York State Capitol, we have a new opportunity to protect the Forest Preserve from ATV misuse – something we have needed for decades!

New York State Rangers have called illegal ATV use “the most problematic activity” taking place on state lands, with the majority of ATV infractions occurring in the DEC Regions covering the Adirondacks. As detailed in our new report, WRONG WAY: How New York State Can Course-Correct on ATV Use, ATVs can cause noise and air pollution, soil erosion and compaction, damage to sensitive vegetation, and disturbance to wildlife and their habitats. To protect our “Forever Wild” Forest Preserve, we need the legislature to act this year.

Please tell our Senate and Assembly Environmental Conservation Chairs (Senator Todd Kaminsky & Assemblyman Steve Englebright) to protect our Forest Preserve from ATV misuse, and enact strict penalties for violators. Please personalize your letter and tell them:

  • Protect the Adirondack Forest Preserve and other state lands from ATV misuse. ATVs have their place, but not on our Adirondack state lands.
  • For three decades, New York State Rangers have said ATV misuse is the “most problematic activity” on state lands, with the majority of ATV infractions occurring in the DEC Regions covering the Adirondacks.
  • Provide strict penalties for violators. This will help the eco-tourism economy for current and future generations, by promoting cleaner and quieter forms of recreation.

You can edit the letter in the box or send as-is.

Please note: Even though the form says "mobile phone," number you can enter a non-mobile phone number.

 Thank you so much!
