Welcome to Our Community

Our quaint downtown communities are nestled among the forests with mountain views, endless waterways and encompassed by fresh air. Offering four seasons of outdoor fun and activities for your family and friends is what we are about. From secluded backcountry hiking to winter Olympic facilities and everything in between, you can find it here in Tupper Lake and the surrounding Tri-Lakes communities.

I love working at The Wild Center because I get to do something different every day. From teaching visitors about the importance of milkweed for monarchs to creating experiences that will make memories for families, I not only get to pursue my passion for nature, but I also get to share it.
