What We Do                                           Alpine Plants                                          What Can You Do?                                     
Summit stewards protect New York’s alpine ecosystem through education, trail work, and research.  These fragile plant communities are found only on the highest mountains of the state.  The High Peaks Summit Steward Program is a partnership of ADK, the Adirondack Chapter of the Nature Conservancy (TNC), and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC).
