2016 Success

Grantee:  Adirondack Council

Result: 20,484 acres protected

New York state purchased the 20,484-acre Boreas Ponds property in the High Peaks region of the Adirondack Park and added it to the “forever wild” Adirondack Forest Preserve. Being part of the Forest Preserve will protect this tract from logging, development and commercial exploitation. Conservation Alliance grantee Adirondack Council is building a coalition and working on this project until this tract is classified as Wilderness and added to the 204,000-acre High Peaks Wilderness.
