The Adirondack Landowners Association is pleased to announce that the Adirondack Lakes Alliance will be the 2016 recipient of the ALA Stewardship Award. This award is given periodically to groups or individuals who have made a tangible impact on the stewardship of Adirondack lands, water or communities. The award will be presented at the ALA winter meeting in Old Forge on December 2nd, 2016.
Water quality is of great concern to everyone in the Adirondacks and around the world. The threats to our environment and economy from aquatic invasive species, has been the focus of the Adirondack Lakes Alliance since they began. They have helped to organize a wide range of lake and river associations throughout the Adirondack Park, along with local government, state agencies, residents and key stakeholders to help create awareness for this important issue.
Adirondack Lakes Alliance Executive Director, Ed Griesmer offered this statement: “The Adirondack Lakes Alliance is pleased and honored to receive the ALA Stewardship Award. In accepting this award, we do so, on behalf of the many lake and river associations throughout the Adirondack region and their thousands of volunteers who serve as first responders in addressing issues affecting our waterways. This award helps to give recognition to the important role they play in keeping our waters clean and safe for all to use and enjoy.”
The Adirondack Landowners Association was founded in 1990 to encourage continued stewardship and sound resource management of the land; to promote public awareness of the valuable role played by private landowners in the Park; to advocate laws, regulations and governmental policies that promote and facilitate good stewardship by private landowners and recognize and preserve their rights in the land.
