Protection


Whether your concern is climate change, mountain air quality, energy-project siting, land, water, and forest protection, or a combination of these and other conservation issues, you can expect AMC to take a stand in defense of the outdoors.

AMC is actively engaged in protection activities across the Northeast and mid-Atlantic regions of the U.S., helping to ensure the future enjoyment of the outdoors for all. Our aim is to create a culture of active conservation to help protect these resources and encourage participation through a multi-tiered approach that includes a vibrant membership base, a team of scientists and policy advocates, land and water protection initiatives, and passionate trail maintenance crews.

AMC’s scientific research and expertise provide a solid grounding for our conservation policy positions and are an essential part of our mission.
