Adirondack Forest Preserve

Protect the Adirondacks

A constitutional amendment approved by voters in November 2013 allows the NYCO Mining company to obtain 200 acres of Adirondack Forest Preserve land next to its mine in exchange for 1,500 acres.  Groups that had challenged test drilling on the land have decided not to appeal a judge’s ruling in favor of the mining company.

A question will appear on the statewide ballot this fall asking New York voters to approve a land swap in the Adirondacks.

It may be a few more months before the state agency that oversees the Adirondack Park decides the classification of newly obtained lands in the Adirondack Forest Preserve.
