Adirondack Mountain Club – Niagara Frontier Chapter

Meet the member organizations of the Western New York Environmental Alliance! 

Organization Name: Adirondack Mountain Club – Niagara Frontier Chapter

Organization Mission: The Adirondack Mountain Club (ADK) is dedicated to the conservation, preservation, and responsible recreational use of the New York State Forest Preserve and other parks, wild lands, and waters vital to our members and chapters. ADK employs a balanced approach to outdoor recreation, advocacy, environmental education, and natural resource conservation.

Organization Vision: To develop, maintain, and complete a sustainable, first-class trail system in concert with public and private entities that includes not only hiking trails, but also alpine areas, canoe carries, mountain bike trails, ski trails, lean-tos, campsites, and trailheads throughout New York State’s Forest Preserve, parks, and other wild lands and waterways.

Key Achievements:

  • The ADK Conservation Program (aka Field Programs) promotes land stewardship through the development and maintenance of quality hiking trails in wild lands throughout New York State. The trails built and maintained by ADK are designed to protect natural resources by reducing erosion and by diverting hikers away from environmentally sensitive areas.
  • Protecting the wild lands and waters our members use and cherish. ADK is the champion of nearly 5 million acres of publicly owned lands across New York State, including the Adirondack and Catskill forest preserves, state parks, state forests, and wildlife management areas.
