State of the Park 2013
Cooperation between local government and environmental organizations increased in the last year, which was good for both the environment and community development, according an Adirondack Council report.
The full report is available below.
The environmental advocacy group on Wednesday released its 2013 State of the Park Report, a 20-page report that gives thumbs-up or thumbs-down ratings to more than 100 actions taken by local, state and federal governments in the last year.
“The Adirondack Park can be, and should be, the world’s greatest example of how a modern society can live in harmony with nature,” said Adirondack Council Executive Director William C. Janeway. “Local officials are recognizing more than ever that their communities depend upon the health and beauty of the public Forest Preserve for their survival.”
“This year, community leaders and environmentalists collaborated and made modest progress on issues of mutual concern,” Janeway said. “Next year, we hope to accomplish more.”
