Adirondack Park

With globally unique wetlands, thousands of lakes and ponds, and over 30,000 miles of rivers and streams the aquatic resources of the Adirondack Park are extensive and diverse and provide a range of ecosystem services for both residents and visitors. There are multiple justifications for focusing resources on saving and protecting this special place from the environmental and socioeconomic threats to our aquatic resources. The justification is most clear from a socioeconomic perspective, as the Adirondack Park's aquatic resources help form the backbone of the regional economy. Visitors expend over $1.2 billion dollars annually and tourism provides employment for over 26,000 residents. Clean and abundant water is a main ingredient of the tourism package that attracts visitors to the Adirondack Park, as over 85 percent of visitors' desire waterside lodging and approximately 70 percent want to swim, fish, or boat while visiting the Adirondacks. The Adirondack Watershed Institute (AWI) of Paul Smith's College conducts work focused largely on conserving and protecting aquatic resources and thus AWI plays a critical role in protecting the environmental and socioeconomic vitality of the Adirondack region.
