September through mid-October. Check website for schedule.

This fall, take a walk on the wild side at The Wild Center and see the Adirondacks in all of its colorful glory. The Wild Center offers 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 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. And in autumn, Wild Center's world is ablaze with all of the season's glorious and vibrant colors - and you can get a bird's eye view from the treetops!

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.

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