We are excited to highlight another @conservationalliance success story this month! This story is about the persistence it takes to reclaim, expand, and create wilderness. Local wilderness advocates Diane Fish and Tyler Frakes spent ten years working with the State of New York to acquire and protect 63,000 acres in the “forever wild” Adirondack Forest Preserve in New York.
The 20,484-acre Boreas Ponds property at the center of this project is now part of the High Peaks Wilderness Area in Adirondack Park, and protected in perpetuity from logging and development.
Watch the video below and follow @adirondackcouncil to see how you can get involved in protecting the wild character and ecological integrity of Adirondack Park.
