Create. Promote. Preserve.
AdkAction creates projects that address unmet needs, promote vibrant communities, and preserve the character of the Adirondacks. We work to limit pollution from road salt, expand internet access, conserve pollinator habitat, revitalize communities, promote artists, and improve quality of life in the rural communities of the Adirondack park.

Reducing Road Salt
Road salt is polluting our ground and surface waters and we will not stand for a future without clean water for future generations of Adirondack residents and visitors. We helped realize a 30% reduction of road salt application in test areas in less than two years, and continue to push New York State to move toward more sustainable winter road maintenance practices.
We have been working to reduce road salt pollution in the Adirondacks since 2010. We administer the Adirondack Road Salt Working Group to foster a unified regional strategy to reduce road salt pollution and to publicly recommend and support alternative deicing products/techniques and best management practices.

We are a membership organization.
Members are the lifeblood of AdkAction, generating ideas, inspiration, passion, and financial support to make our many projects possible. Members pay annual fees that keep our work going, and in return, receive the pride of taking action to improve the Adirondacks for future generations.
Membership is open to all students, individuals, families, and business that are interested in the future of the Adirondacks. All paid members can vote in our elections and are invited to attend our annual meeting. Every member will receive a copy of our quarterly newsletter, and the satisfaction of being a part of solutions that benefit everyone in the Adirondacks.
