A Wild Idea: The Birth of the APA

A Wild Idea tells the story of the origins of the Adirondack Park Agency created in 1971.

New York’s Adirondack Park is larger than Yellowstone, Yosemite, Glacier, Grand Canyon, and Great Smokies National Parks combined. It is one of the largest unbroken deciduous forests on earth. Most of the land within the park is privately owned, and 85 million people live within a day’s drive. A WILD IDEA explores the founding of the Adirondack Park Agency 50 years ago.

A Wild Idea: The Birth of the APA is presented by your local public television station.
