Since ADK’s commitment to wildness began nearly 100 years ago, we have steadfastly held that the land should be both revered and enjoyed. Nature is not an abstract concept – people are in fact one with the natural world and most whole when we honor the instinct to respectfully connect with the earth.
Today, as we face the largest human crisis in our lifetimes, the planet is speaking, showing us that modified behaviors can quickly lead to a cleaner, healthier world. It’s up to us to listen and learn.
Our actions and choices affect the environment, whether globally or regionally. Protecting the Adirondack Forest Preserve and other wild lands and waters of New York State has a local impact with broader implications. Together we teach the delicate balance that can reduce our harmful footprint on the planet. Love the land but respect it, and it will take care of us now and long into the future.
Once a year is not enough. The protection of Earth and all its living creatures must be a constant priority.
Your gift to ADK today supports a healthier Earth tomorrow, starting right here in New York State.
