VIDEO: Expanding New York’s High Peaks Wilderness Area

Our newest video is a story about Boreas Ponds in New York’s Adirondack Park, and the persistence it takes to reclaim, expand, and create wilderness.
Adirondack Council’s Diane Fish and Tyler Frakes spent ten years working to protect 63,000 acres in the Adirondack Forest Preserve, including the 20,484-acre Boreas Ponds tract. Once privately owned, Boreas Ponds is now part of the High Peaks Wilderness Area and protected in perpetuity from logging and development.  Diane and Tyler take us on a paddle through this new motor-free wilderness.
This is the fourth video in a six-part series about the passionate people working to protect our wild future with support from The Conservation Alliance.
