"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s
peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms
their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves."

This month, Adirondack Wild and the Sierra Club Atlantic Chapter have written to the NYS Senate and NYS Assembly asking for a further constitutional amendment which would establish a date certain by which all further mineral sampling and the land exchange for Lot 8 in the Jay Mtn.

The time is now to force NYCO to fulfill its original promises or to allow the Jay Wilderness Area to be freed from the perpetual threat of private mineral exploitation.
