“A gem worth preserving”

Adirondack Explorer magazine features iconic Northeast Wilderness Trust project

Stretching from sea to sky, the Split Rock Wildway links the Northeast’s “Great Lake” – Lake Champlain – to the High Peaks of the Adirondacks. For wildlife of the North Woods, this wildway is a crucial link between lush, low-elevation habitat along the lakeshore and the windswept, rugged terrain of the high country.

While clearcuts and roads are minor obstacles for humankind, put yourself in the paws of a bobcat, and you might find the path from lake to peak isn’t so straightforward. That’s where Northeast Wilderness Trust comes in. The Eagle Mountain Wilderness Preserve would expand the reach of the Split Rock Wildway concept to connect Lake Champlain to the High Peaks by focusing on another critical wildlife corridor to the north.

To make Eagle Mountain a success, Northeast Wilderness Trust is teaming up with Champlain Area Trails (CATS) and Adirondack Land Trust. CATS will work with NWT stewardship staff to develop a foot trail on the property—continuing a longstanding relationship between both organizations. Adirondack Land Trust will hold the forever-wild conservation easement on the property.

We’re thrilled that the project is featured in the current edition of Adirondack Explorer.

Please donate today to help us make Eagle Mountain a reality. Your monthly gift makes our work possible to permanently protect this vital wildlife corridor in the face of expanding development pressures and climate change.
