The U.S. Supreme Court will review an appeals court ruling that overturned the Environmental Protection Agency's Cross-State Air Pollution Rule. Two Adirondack environmental groups say the move is crucial for the long-term health of the region’s ecosystem.
The Adirondack Council is the latest conservation group to release a plan for New York State’s newly acquired land in the Adirondacks.
In August, New York State officials announced the state will purchase 69-thousand acres of former Finch-Pruyn lands in the Adirondacks over the next five years. Those lands must be classified under DEC Unit Management Plans.
With over 6 million acres, New York’s Adirondack Park is the largest park, state level protected area, and national historic landmark in the contiguous United States.
Those who live and love the Adirondacks face many issues, including how best to preserve the environmental integrity of the park while also accomadating those who live there.
Joining us today to discuss these issues are John Sheehan, communications director with the Adirondack Council, and Fred Monroe, executive director of the Adirondack Park Local Government Review Board. WAMC’s Alan Chartock hosts.
