Help a Child Experience Nature

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 unfortunately, 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.

Why I Invest

“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.”

Howard M. Fish, Former Publisher, Adirondack Life
