The Wild Center reopens May 2nd. We close annually for the month of April to refresh exhibits, and get the Center ready for the summer season.
The award-winning Center houses live exhibits and multi-media shows. This year we feature Moments, an experience all about how we see the fractions of time where nature lives. You can also experience Planet Adirondack, a new show with a giant floating Earth where you can see the planet come alive, and Flight of the Butterflies will be here until June 30, an award-winning film that follows an amazing winged migration.
You can explore the 31-acre campus and take a guided paddle on our section of the flat waters of the Raquette River. Inside there are plenty of hands-on activities and hundreds of live animals from rare native trout, to porcupines, hawks, and many other often hard-to-see residents of the woods and waters.
