AdkAction.org is a member-driven organization dependent on user contributions.
AdkAction.org is an issues-driven, non-partisan, 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization. AdkAction.org has members throughout the Adirondacks, including many in the Tri-Lakes area where the organization was founded in 2007. The group sponsored a scientific study of road salt pollution, conducted by Paul Smith's College Adirondack Watershed Institute, and an initial study evaluating alternative uses of the rail line from Lake Placid to Tupper Lake, conducted by a consulting group. It also sponsored a presentation by a Center for Governmental Research before the Saranac and Lake Placid school boards, resulting in the districts' decision to seek funding for a consolidation study. Other key issues on which AdkAction.org is currently working include promoting universal broadband access in the Adirondack Park, protecting water quality, reducing pollution from road salt, and controlling invasive species in the region's lakes.
