I’m writing to introduce you to AdkAction. To put it simply, we get things done.
Our work is different from other organizations because each project is led by a passionate board member. We manage several diverse projects at once with limited staff, no office, and low overhead.
All of our projects aim to make life better for the people who live and work here and protect the natural resources that make this place so special.
For example, New York State uses a lot of road salt—more than any other state. The salt encourages corrosion of bridges and other infrastructure and prematurely rusts our vehicles. The excess salt is also contaminating our lakes, streams, and even drinking water. We have helped achieve a 30% reduction in road salt application in test areas.
We also work to make high-speed internet access available to everyone in the Adirondacks. There are too many homes and businesses that do not have reliable internet access and in today's world, Internet access is not a luxury, it is a necessity.
Other projects include: The Adirondack Pollinator Project which seeks to protect critical pollinator habitats through hands-on conservation work, the Keeseville “Farmacy" which helps residents in a small Adirondack hamlet with no grocery store gain access to fresh local food, and the Property Assessments project which aspires to make assessments fair, consistent, and reliable. Finally, our Promoting Local Artists project supported two Plein Air Festivals 2017 and helped artists sell over $48,000 in artwork featuring local landscapes and landmarks.
You can invest in the future of the Adirondacks by making a membership contribution today. We can’t wait to welcome you as a member!
