The Institute of Museum and Library Services named The Wild Center on of 15 museum finalists for the National Medal for Museum and Library Service. The medal is the nation's highest honor for museums, recognizing institutions for their extraordinary public service and remarkable contributions to their communities.
Throughout the year there are eXpeditions, snowshoe hikes, guided birding walks, BYOB (boat!) trips, talks and more. Find out more.
There's a day's worth of things to see and do at the 54,000-square-foot Center and on our 81-acre campus.
Come explore the exhibit halls, meet one of our many animals at an animal encounter, take a woodland walk down to the Raquette River, join us for a live show, or watch one of many amazing films produced by The Wild Center. It's all covered by your single admission.
Wild Walk is open too, a chance to walk over the tree tops, and explore life the way it's lived on the wilder side.
The Wild Center's movie, A Matter of Degrees, narrated by Sigourney Weaver, was a finalist at the Banff Mountain Film Festival and first prize winner at the National Association for Interpretation. Filmed exclusively for The Wild Center's wide screen, it's screened each day.
Coming to and from The Wild Center, you can try out these area fall foliage bright spots. Our guide includes online maps, and live cams showing fall right now in various locations in the Adirondacks.
We hope to see you at The Wild Center to help you see even more of the amazing nature of the Adirondacks during your fall visit. This year, for the first time ever, Wild Walk is open during the fall season. Wild Walk is an elevated trail up over the treetops, where you will see the fall colors from the same point of view normally reserved for birds and the best squirrel scramblers around.
Have you ever wondered about the science behind leaf changes in the fall? Stop by Wild Walk (open until Columbus Day) for special fall programming in addition to guided walks around The Wild Center property, live animal encounters, and fall inspired watercolor projects offered daily. The Wild Center campus offers many opportunities along our trail system to view Autumn at its most beautiful times.
