Correspondence, reports, notes, publications, and other material from David Gibson's work with the Association for the Protection of the Adirondacks (AfPA) and other environmental advocacy organizations. The primary focus of the collection is land use and development within both the public and privately owned lands of the Adirondack Park. The collection includes special published reports printed by the AfPA and other organizations, resources gathered in research, materials collected during participation in committees, and correspondence lobbying legislators independently and collectively with other conservation organizations. It also contains organizational materials for conferences and events. Box 5 and a significant portion of Box 6 contain materials on issues involving the APA, in particular the 1996-1997 restructuring of regulations and procedures within the agency. These boxes also contain materials from 1992 to 1993 when many hydroelectric dams in NYS were required to apply for relicensing. This renewed the debate as to the role and value of hydroelectric dams within the Adirondack Park.
