Naming Opportunities

We are happy to meet with you to talk about ideas that have special meaning for you or for the person you wish to honor. 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 Naturalist Cabinet, and quiet benches along the trails – all recognized as a testament to someone’s special love of the Adirondacks.

If you wish to meet with us to talk about what you might want to do for a friend or family member please contact Hillarie Logan-Dechene.


Animal Champion

Anybody can become an Animal Champion, and it makes the perfect gift for holidays, birthdays, or any special occasion, for a child, grandparent, friend or yourself. When you become an Animal Champion, you help provide food, veterinary care, enrichment and a healthy home for the animals that live at The Wild Center.
