Triple Your Donation with a 2 for 1 Match

The Wild Center is working with Alliance for Climate Education to bring award-winning climate change assemblies to students at schools across the Adirondacks. The goal is to reach ten schools and 4,000 students with climate science, practical solutions and leadership skills the students can use in their schools, communities and careers. Your donation of any amount is tripled by two matching fund offers - one from Casella and another from an anonymous donor.

See the high-energy video from The Wild Center's 2014 Youth Climate Summit - then send that energy throughout the Adirondacks by tripling the value of your donation.

Your $10 donation will be matched with another $20

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.
