Urge Governor Cuomo to Hire More Forest Rangers & Other Staff
To help solve overuse in the Adirondacks

New York Forest Rangers and other state environmental staff are experts in protecting our natural resources and the people who use them. Their responsibility exists 24 hours per day, 365 days per year, and they work long days and nights facing the elements. With the Adirondacks experiencing a surge in hikers and overuse, more search and rescue operations are being carried out and resources are being degraded.

Governor Cuomo has successfully promoted the Park as a world-class outdoor destination. But now, more Forest Rangers and other essential staff are needed to protect the natural resources of the Forest Preserve, visitor safety, and the wilderness experience that people come to the Adirondacks to enjoy.

Please tell the Governor:

  • Thank you for your successful promotion of the Park as a world-class outdoor destination.
  • The Adirondacks are experiencing record visitation and overuse. Without increases in staffing and management, natural resources and visitor safety will be compromised.
  • More Forest Rangers and other lands and forests staff are needed to protect visitors, the natural resources and the wilderness experience that people come to the Adirondacks to enjoy.

You can edit the letter to the right or send as-is. Thank you so much!
