WHAT IS A2A?
The Algonquin to Adirondacks (A2A) region is a unique diverse bioregion that connects Algonquin Park to Adirondack Park through the Frontenac Arch and surrounding lands. Home to a vast array of plants and animals, it is one of the last large-scale, intact forest and wetland linkages left in Eastern North America. It provides the best remaining potential for wildlife movement across the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence system.
The A2A Collaborative is a U.S., Canadian, and First Nations partner organization that works with scientists, policy-makers and a variety of conservation groups to protect and enhance the unique ecological features and functions of the A2A region.
Our dream is a resilient, ecologically connected A2A region that sustains a full range of native wildlife and enhances people’s quality of life for generations to come.
We invite you to explore this site to learn about the A2A Trail -- a Pilgrimage for Nature, Eco-passageways across highways, partner initiatives, and conservation resources such as connectivity mapping.
