    “that documents a pattern of mission drift, forest fragmentation, lowered standards and reduced wilderness safeguards by the State agencies whose job it is to protect the Adirondack Park.” In other words…as interpreted by “Adirondack Wild” aka “David Gibson” and, in my opinion, his very biased views.

    Thankfully there are many other “Friends of the Forest Preserve” who happen to think that NYS DEC and the State of New York is heading in the right direction by actually making more of the Forest Preserve actually accessible to residents of this State!

    The recent accessibility movement/momentum that has classified recent acquisitions (e.g. Essex Chain Lakes) so that more New Yorkers can actually see, feel and touch the Adirondacks is definitely a breath of fresh air!

    Our Senior Citizens, mobility handicapped Folks and our disabled vets all deserve to see the Forest Preserve up close and personal as opposed to a roadside view restricted by “Wilderness” classification.

    Thank you
