2010 Success

Grantee:  Adirondack Mountain Club

adk.org

Result: 55,250 acres protected

Our funding supported Adirondack Mountain Club’s Save Alleghany State Park Campaign to protect Alleghany State Park from proposed hydro-fracking mining.  ADK reports the New York Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation has designated 85 percent of the 65,000-acre park as Park Preservation Area, meaning it will be maintained in a near-wilderness state. This protection was made final in July and will prevent any oil & gas drilling and development in the park.
