Adirondack Park Agency

Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources

The Adirondack Council wants the Adirondack Park Agency to hold a formal public hearing before deciding whether to allow the use of a chemical herbicide in a lake to kill an invasive plant.

Adirondack Park Agency commissioners have approved a General Permit for management of aquatic invasive species.  The permit restricts the use of mats that are used to smother non-native species like the Asian Clam, due to concerns that native shoreline ecosystems are being adversely affected.

Two conservation groups have re-submitted court papers in an attempt to obtain documents that they say prove state agencies improperly communicated with developers before approving the largest development project in the Adirondacks.

Big Tupper Ski Area

The Big Tupper Ski area in the Adirondacks will not open this winter, and the people operating it say it’s due to lawsuits that are trying to stop a large development that includes the mountain.
