Environmental Non-Profit Organizations
Here are some organizations that have favorably impacted the environment in the Adirondacks and should help everyone’s awareness of what they too can do to help. After watching the movie No Impact Man (which I highly recommend everyone watch), I vowed to follow a simple request of joining one of these groups that strive to make a difference. Recycling your household goods is a start but extending our reach to the outside is where we need to further our impacts.
Protect The Adirondacks! A non-profit, grassroots membership organization dedicated to the protection and stewardship of the public and private lands of the Adirondack Park, and to building the health and diversity of its human communities and economies for the benefit of current and future generations.
Adirondack Park Invasive Plant ProgramThe Adirondack Park in upstate New York includes six million acres of public and private land incorporating large diverse landscapes, intact ecosystems, and high quality natural communities. These fragile interconnections of landscape, water, and the organisms they support are now threatened by the deleterious effects of nonnative, invasive plants and animals. The Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program's mission is to protect the Adirondack region from the negative impacts of nonnative invasive species.

Their goal is to ensure that Adirondack Park remains a resilient landscape where human and wildlife populations thrive across a patchwork of communities, forests, wetlands, mountains, and rivers.
