Explore the remarkable history, seasonal landscape and current state of New York’s Adirondack Park, the largest park in the lower 48 states.
Sprawled across six million acres in upstate New York, the Adirondack Park is by far the largest park in the lower 48 states. Yet it is the only one on the continent in which large human populations live and whose land is divided almost evenly between protected wilderness and privately owned tracts. This patchwork pattern of land ownership has created an utterly unique place that maintains, at its very heart, a delicate and dynamic relationship between progress and preservation. Through the varied perspectives of several passionate characters, this program explores the remarkable history, seasonal landscape and current state of the Adirondacks.
