The history and current programs of the Adirondack Mountain Club are outlined from its inception in 1922 up to the present. Though originally formed with a prime interest in trail construction and hiking in the Forest Preserve, the organization has evolved with an equal emphasis on conservation and education. A volunteer board of directors, advised by 14 standing committees, governs ADK Volunteers run the 27 chapters of the Club. From conservation, advocacy, education, and recreation, to the publishing of trail, paddling and climbing guides, the Club is deeply involved in all aspects of wild land affairs in New York State.
