The Adirondack Stewardship Project

The Adirondack Stewardship Program provides Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification for qualifying forests and wood procuring businesses. We work carefully with enrolled forestland owners to assist in marketing certified resources, from timber to carbon credits, at their highest capacity and aid with the continuing management and stewardship of forests in the Adirondack Park.  Click here for more information

Adirondack Lake Assessment Project

Now entering its 21st year, ALAP, the Adirondack Lake Assessment Project, is the largest, most professional, volunteer-driven water quality monitoring program in the Adirondack Park. ALAP is a partnership between PROTECT, the Adirondack Watershed Institute at Paul Smith’s College (AWI), and project sponsors and lake monitors. ALAP was established to help develop a comprehensive and up-to-date database of water quality conditions in the Park.  Click here for more information

Cougar Watch

Cougar Watch was established in response to the regular sightings of this apex predator across the Park. Those who believe they’ve seen a cougar or have taken photos of evidence or the cougar themselves can send this information to us and help build a database for experts to assess the presence of these big cats in the Adirondack Park. Click here for more information
