The Adirondack Landowners Association (ALA) has announced 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 and threats to the environment and economy from aquatic invasive species, has been the focus of the Adirondack Lakes Alliance since the organization was founded. ALA has helped to organize a wide range of lake and river associations throughout the Adirondack Park, along with local government, state agencies, residents and stakeholders to help create awareness for this important issue.
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.”
