Naming Opportunities

We are happy to meet with you to talk about ideas that have special meaning for you or for the person you wish to honor. We can take a walk around The Wild Center to look at examples of gifts that others have given, including birch trees in the Great Hall, Discovery Boxes in the Naturalists Cabinet, and quiet benches along the trails – all recognized as a testament to someone’s special love of the Adirondacks.
