Join us in a floating demonstration calling for more motorless waters in the Adirondack Park! Your support will help us plan and execute a gathering of outdoor enthusiasts who want to preserve the peace you can only find on quiet waters!!

All donations will be entered into a raffle for a special edition Hornbeck Canoe! 

Protect the Adirondacks  is organizing a floating protest to call for Weller Pond and Little Weller Pond in the Adirondack Park to be managed as motorless waters. We aim to get 200 canoe and kayaks in a flotilla of protest in support of more motorless waters opportunities. 

The Canoe-In will be held on Saturday August 18th, where we gather at Middle Saranac Lake and paddle to beautiful Weller Pond. Weller Pond and Little Weller Pond should be a quiet waters area, made off-limits to motorized watercraft and only accessible by non-motorized vessels. These ponds should be managed by state agencies as a quiet and beautiful refuge and respite among the heavily motorized and extremely popular Saranac Lakes Chain. There are many reasons why the Weller Ponds should be a new motorless area.

Wild places grow fewer each year. The Adirondack Park offers great opportunities for hiking in wild places, where the longer one hikes the more remote the country one can access, but opportunities to do this by boat are limited. For many, canoe or kayak access is how they get to wild places and enjoy Wilderness. Greater opportunities are needed for motorless waters in the Adirondacks and Weller Pond is one such opportunity that must be seized.

Join us and sign up  to participate in the Canoe-In on August 18th. Bring your friends and family. This will be an important event in advocacy for wild and quiet places in the Adirondack Park.

We’re raising money to support the protest for promotion, van shuttles, insurance and more. Please help us out today.

Donate today and you'll be entered for the chance to win a special edition Hornbeck Canoe . The drawing will be after the protest on August 18th.
