This year’s meeting will feature a special presentation of the ALA Stewardship Award to NYS Senator Betty Little. Friday night activities will include a social reception, dinner, additional tributes and a live and silent auction. On Saturday morning a member meeting will feature a presentation by NYS DEC Senior Wildlife Biologist Paul Jensen on the department’s Pine Marten program.
The ALA was founded 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.”
The ALA represents approximately 3,500 members who collectively own almost 250,000 acres of private land in the Adirondacks. You can learn more about the ALA at www.adklandowners.org
