The chapter provides opportunities for members to get involved in ADK’s conservation, advocacy, recreation, education, & stewardship work in the local area and statewide.
Our chapter is consists of hundreds of members throughout the Southern Tier and lower Mohawk Valley of New York. Our members come from all walks of life, and participate in many outdoor activities in the local area and Adirondack and Catskill State Parks. Whether you enjoy a quiet paddle on the Susquehanna River, a hike on a local trail, or summiting one of the 46 high peaks in the Adirondacks, we hope that our chapter provides you with a connection to engage with the protection of the wilderness you enjoy and cherish.

Our chapter continues to increase the number of outings and trip available to members and the local community. Our weekly Tuesday outings provide members the opportunity to explore the many parks and state forests in the greater Oneonta region in all four seasons.
