NYS DEC continues on a reckless course of destroying the culture of the Adirondack Mountains in the name of preservation. What needs to be preserved is the way of life that allows people to partake of the beauty of the lakes and moutains and woods of this unique region. What government doesn’t need to do is bar people from access–particularly people who have enjoyed access for generations.
Check out this video of a 100 year old family recreation area which would be taken away if DEC is allowed to purchase land that it does not need to purchase. There are nearly 2 dozen other recreation areas that would also be destroyed.
There is an alternative to purchasing the land and throwing the people out. You can learn more and sign the petition asking Gov. Cuomo to do the right thing by clicking the links below.
