The Wild Center is an outdoor and indoor experience on 81-acres that has earned praise from around the world for how it lets visitors of all ages get closer to the natural world.


The Wild Center is home to more than 900 live Adirondack animals – including otters, porcupines, ravens, snakes and fresh-water fish – and you can see them in the exhibit halls or up-close and personal during an “Animal Encounter” with one of the facilities Naturalists. In the center's main building you’ll find 54,000-square-feet of exhibit halls, live animals, hands-on experiences, a wide-screen theater, our cafe, store, and special programs throughout each day.
 

Outside you can walk trails, head to the river to canoe or paddleboard with a guide, explore Wild Walk, or discover the Pines Play Area, a wild playground in the forest. The Wild Walk takes visitors up a trail of bridges to the treetops of the Adirondack forest where you can hang out high above the forest floor in the spider’s web or take in the view from the eagle’s nest.
 

Wild Walk is accessible to people of all generations and abilities.
