The Adirondack League Club was established in 1890 with guiding principles and a dedication to conservation across a unique expanse of land in the Adirondacks. The members enjoy fishing, hunting, hiking, boating activities, and a mutual respect for the Club and one another.
Article I of the constitution of the Adirondack League Club states the three guiding principles of the ALC are:
1. The preservation and conservation of the Adirondack forest and the propagation and proper protection of fish and game in the Adirondack region.
2. The establishment and promotion of an improved system of scientific forestry.
3. The maintenance of an ample preserve for the benefit of its members for the purpose of hunting, fishing, rest, and recreation.
