Take Action: Send A Message To NY State
Boreas Needs Your Voice
Despite overwhelming public support for a full Wilderness classification of the Boreas Ponds tract, the Adirondack Park Agency has been dragging their feet on the classification, and by all accounts this is due to a proposal from the Governor’s office to include development of commercial lodging facilities on the tract. This proposal undermines the remote wild character of these lands and has the potential to forever change the nature of Adirondack Wilderness areas. We need your support now more than ever. Below are three ways you can help protect Boreas Ponds and ensure there is no development of our Adirondack Wilderness.
- Attend the November 16th-17th Adirondack Park Agency meeting as part of a silent protest against the proposal to allow commercial lodging facilities to be built on the Boreas Ponds tract. This is our chance to send a message directly to the APA Board. It is important attendees be respectful and silent while the APA Board conducts their business. We encourage you to wear t-shirts or hold signs that express your support for an FULL Wilderness classification that does not include huts, glamping, or any form of development. The meeting will be held on November 16th & 17th at the APA Headquarters in Ray Brook (1133 NYS Route 86, Raybrook, NY 12977).
- Send a letter to the Adirondack Park agency using the form on this page.
- Share this page with your friends, family, and colleagues. It is going to take a strong show of public support for Wilderness and opposite to development of the Forest Preserve to protect Boreas Pond and all Adirondack Wilderness areas. We only have a few weeks to demonstrate, once again, the overwhelming support for Adirondack Wilderness.
