During the last 30 years, Conservation Alliance has helped protect more 51 million acres of wildlands, 3,107 river miles, stopped or removed 34 dams, purchased 14 climbing areas and designated five marine reserves. As a proud Partner for Change, we’re excited to share and support some of the Alliance’s successes with you.

The Adirondack Park story is about the persistence it takes to reclaim, expand, and create wilderness. Local wilderness advocates Diane Fish and Tyler Frakes spent ten years working with the State of New York to acquire and protect 63,000 acres in the “forever wild” Adirondack Forest Preserve in New York. The 20,484-acre Boreas Ponds property at the center of this project is now part of the High Peaks Wilderness Area in Adirondack Park and protected in perpetuity from logging and development.
