A coalition of regional and national conservation organizations and supporters today presented more than 22,000 petition signatures and thousands of personal letters to Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Adirondack Park Agency calling on the agency to protect the pristine and sensitive Boreas Ponds tract as motor-free wilderness. Public hearings on the state’s land-classification plans for the stunningly beautiful mountain-scape have already begun. They will continue through early December. Public comments will be accepted by the Adirondack Park Agency (APA) through Dec. 30. The BeWildNY Coalition is calling for a wilderness (no motors) classification on about two-thirds of the Boreas Ponds tract, with a buffer of wilderness at least one mile wide separating the access road and parking lot from the ponds. This new video shows why the Boreas Ponds tract should be protected from cars, trucks, snowmobiles and other vehicles. The three-minute educational video is narrated by actress Sigourney Weaver. The music soundtrack was composed by Michael Bacon.
