New York’s Adirondack Park is where wilderness preservation began in America, and much of that story is credited to Paul Schaefer (1908-1996), founder of Friends of the Forest Preserve and mentor to Adirondack Wild.
What We Do
Adirondack Wild values and works for an interconnected, unfragmented, intact and healthy network of protected public and private wildlands across the entire Adirondack Park.
Adirondack Wild is on the Wild’s Side. We are a not-for-profit, membership advocate acting as the public’s voice to safeguard wilderness and to promote wild land values and stewardship.
