Explore The Wild Center and its new Wild Walk—an elevated trail across the treetops—in the Adirondacks. Find new ways to connect with nature through outdoor experiences like iForest, a 54,000-square-foot museum with live animals, guided canoe and stand up paddleboard trips, and hands-on everything.


The Wild Center and Wild Walk are open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 10am until 5pm.

Step into iForest: An immersive sound experience on The Wild Center’s campus and a new way to connect with the natural world through music.

Wander up a trail of bridges to the treetops of the Adirondack forest. Explore a four-story twig tree house filled with animal tales, hang out high above the ground on a giant spider’s web or perch in a full-sized bald eagle’s nest high over the forest. Wild Walk gives you new and lasting perspective on the wild world.

Have a day? Two? Want to explore the area? Bringing children? Want to become a member? We’re here to help you plan your visit to The Wild Center and the surrounding region.
