Keeping in touch: A note from Mike Carr

Dear Friends,

This spring has brought sudden change to all of our lives. In the face of so much uncertainty, it’s reassuring to know that the Adirondacks endure. These lakes, streams, mountains and forests provide respite, health and connectedness. Thanks to foresighted people who love them, they promise to be here for all of us in the long run. 

The Adirondack Land Trust continues work at full strength to conserve our vital natural safety net, thanks to the generosity of committed supporters. At a time like this, it is an honor to do work that provides trails, open space, clean water and other essential benefits for our communities. Our team is able to work remotely, and many of us are doing what we can to help our communities respond to COVID-19.

We are also taking a hard look at the pandemic’s impact on the land trust’s annual land-stewardship plans, field trips and volunteer workdays. We’ll do our best to keep you up to date on events and conservation projects, and updates will be available at our website.

In the meantime, on behalf of the entire team, we hope you are well and able to find ways to get outdoors for some fresh air. If you go for a hike, please do so locally and safely, in accordance with New York State Parks guidelines.

Sincerely,

Mike Carr

Executive Director
