Public Invited to Join AWA for High Peaks Webinar

“All About the HPAG Report” with Q & A is the subject of AWA’s First “Wilderness Webinar”

On May 26th at 7:30 PM, AWA will hold the first in a series of Wilderness Webinars.  These webinars will be interactive forums on critical issues in Adirondack Wilderness protection.  Each will feature a short presentation of the scheduled topic, followed by a question-and-answer session with webinar participants.  The webinars will be free and open to the public.

In the inaugural Wilderness Webinar, AWA Board member and High Peaks Advisory Group (HPAG) member Pete Nelson will talk about the recently released HPAG Final Report.  Nelson will give a brief overview of the most important topics both in the report and in the actions taken since its release, then save the bulk of the hour for what is likely to be a lively question and answer session. Among the topics in his overview will be:

  • Three big themes in the HPAG report
  • Media Misconceptions
  • AWA’s HPAG priorities
  • The HPAG Report’s relationship to the new  AMR/DEC Hiker Reservation system Permit pilot and Route 73 parking restrictions
  • How to make and measure progress on the report’s recommendations.

This webinar will be conducted via Zoom. Pre-registration is required. To sign up, please click the following button:
