    Clarence Park’s work, which he probably deemed as play, singularly led to the protection and designation of upstate New York’s Adirondack Park. The park consists of 5.8 million acres and is considered the last great wilderness in the eastern United States. In the late 1950s he and his colleague hiked through the remote backcountry areas of the park, and this helped the Adirondack Park Agency define what areas would be designated wilderness and which would be considered wild forest, a very important distinction. In 1975 he helped found and became director of the Adirondack Council.
