"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."

ADIRONDACK WILD EXCLUSIVE

11th Annual Meeting of Members and Friends
September 24, 2021 – 1:00pm – 3:00 pm

This year we will be gathering in North Creek at the Tannery Pond Community Center, 228 Main Street, North Creek, NY.  

Our 2021 Meeting’s Focus will be on:

Our meeting features guest speakers Chad Dawson, Adirondack Wild Board member and former APA member, and Andrea Hogan, current APA Member and Town Supervisor of Johnsburg. Our focus will be on the current state of the Adirondack Park Agency at 50 Years (1971-2021) and reimagining the APA in the Next 50 Years.

The Adirondack Park Agency Act was a bold plan born in 1971 with considerable thought, vision, controversy, and hope for the future. Now we are 50 years into that future and the APA may be in a much less hopeful place. How do we respond today and refocus on the promise and vision of the APA Act in the future?

Come and join the discussion and help celebrate award recipients of our Paul Schaefer Wilderness Award and Wild Stewardship Award.
