We believe that people and the natural world can thrive together.

We believe that with the help of science we can move beyond our present challenges.   As the growth of human civilization often comes at the expense of the natural world, we believe we need to find ways for a vibrant human economy to coexist with thriving nature.

The Wild Center is committed to helping the Adirondacks become a model for this idea, and one that can lead by example.

Here you can explore some of the innovative ways people are advancing the concept of people and nature thriving together.
