Green Hotels & Lodging in the Adirondacks
Reduce Your Environmental Impact at a Sustainable Green Hotel
The Adirondacks enjoy a very long history of environmental leadership and vision. The Blue Line that defines the boundaries of the Adirondack Park was established in 1892 in order to protect timber and water resources. And, groups from the Adirondacks have had a role in the establishment of national and statewide legislation aimed at eliminating acid rain and other related issues.
