There are 2 main problems in the world - the first is people getting along with each other, while the second is people and nature getting along. People and Nature will only thrive together when people learn about and appreciate our natural environment - because when you love something you'll do what you can to protect it. The Wild Center was created to help people fall in love with nature, and your donations help make that happen.
Every child should have a chance to learn about and appreciate all the wonders that nature has to offer - and not just from a distance, but UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL. And that's what happens everyday at The Wild Center, but unfortuantely, not all families have the ability to visit - it's just not in their budget. That's where our School Visit and Library Card programs can make a difference. Make your gift today in support of those programs and help a child experience nature from a whole new point of view.

The former president of SUNY ESF speaks about the future of what he terms The Great Experiment, also called the Adirondacks, and the role The Wild Center can play in defining that future.
"It will be about understanding, not politics."
"The future of the Adirondacks isn't guaranteed.
I invest in The Wild Center because I think it can do more to help the next generation make the Adirondacks a better place for everything that lives here. I believe this because I see first hand that the Center doesn't broadcast a point of view, it helps people form their own, and that makes all the difference."

The past president of St Lawrence University speaks about global challenges, and why The Wild Center is a place that works on a local and not-so-local scale.
