At AMC, we support science-based solutions to environmental threats. Our conservation team produces high-quality, peer-reviewed data and analysis on climate change, air and water quality, forests, and mountain ecosystems in collaboration with some of the region’s most highly regarded universities and agency partners. This research informs our work with policymakers in Washington, D.C. and in state houses across the region to forge practical, bipartisan solutions to protect the outdoors.
Everything we do is driven by our goal of protecting our natural resources and outdoor experiences. Our overarching priorities include trail stewardship, understanding and addressing climate change, and land, air, and water protection in the Northern Appalachian Mountains and other priority areas of the region.
Our three-pronged approach to environmental protection is composed of research, advocacy and on-the-ground conservation.
These three approaches are intertwined, and all are driven by our scientific research.
