Join Adirondack Artists Carol Marie Vossler (September 4th, 18th, and 25th) and John LaFalce (September 11th) for our Art in the Park Fall Open Studio Series. Carol and John will be in the Art Studio at The Wild Center from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm for drop in art lessons.
Death. Decay. Destruction. Fungi do all these things. Underneath their dainty caps and stalks is a vast network of threads, connecting the forest in a cycle of give and take; life and death. Fungi play a crucial role in the ecosystem, recycling matter and boosting life. Join amateur mycologist Susan Hopkins as she sheds light on these fascinating forest residents.
Spend a day photographing the west central Adirondacks during the peak of fall color in the area, with Carl Heilman as your guide and instructor.
The Wild Center is taking science to the people. Science on Tap brings experts into the bars and breweries of the North Country to let you know about what’s happening in your backyard. Drop in for your beverage of choice and hear local scientists talk about cutting edge research in the Adirondacks. Come out and learn something new and exciting about this beautiful place we call home.
Beneath the surface of the forest, there is a world of creeping and crawling things. Bugs and other creatures devour leaves, and sometimes each other. Staff Naturalist Simon Schreier needs your help to find these critters. After a brief introduction to the world of invertebrates, venture outside to get your hands dirty and find insects, spiders, and so much more.
Curiosity opens up a world of possibilities—it’s what pushes us to keep learning, keep moving forward, and keep trying. Spend the day around the exhibits and trails looking beneath the surface to discover mysterious unknowns.
