Lecture 17 - Land Use and Conservation Law: The Adirondack History

This video was recorded at YALE - EVST 255 - Environmental Politics and Law. By reviewing the conservation history of the Adirondack Park, this lecture examines strategies to manage land use and natural resources in protected areas. The Adirondacks has been protected since the 1880s and became a national park in the 1970s. The government manages the park for a variety of uses, including recreational, ecological, and natural resource-related uses. The multiple uses of the park create conflict amongst stakeholders and require regulations that prevent certain types of development. The lecture reviews regulations and zoning ordinances that protect public lands. Resources Lecture 17 [PDF]
