The Conservation Alliance supported the Adirondack Council’s Upper Hudson Woodlands Campaign to ensure the protection of 200,000 acres of land in the Adirondacks; 90,000 acres of which was protected in 2011.  In August 2012, New York State purchased 69,000 additional acres of the Upper Hudson River watershed, providing permanent protection for its mountains, ponds, lakes, streams, forests and wetlands, while preserving the land for human-powered recreation and public access.
