The Wild Center – Tupper Lake, New York

The Wild Center, and its new Wild Walk—an elevated trail across the treetops—is an all-day attraction, including 81-acres of outdoors, a 54,000-square-foot museum with movies and live animals, guided canoe paddles, and hands-on everything. In the Hall of the Adirondacks, you can spend time with a myriad fish, turtles, and other animal and plant species, and get a deeper understanding and appreciation of the inner workings of nature in this unique region. The Wild Center is home to more than 900 live Adirondack animals – including otters, porcupines, ravens, snakes and fresh-water fish. See them in our exhibit halls or up-close during an Animal Encounter with one of our Naturalists.

The Wild Walk is closed until late spring but the Museum itself is open throughout the winter on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Visit the Museum website for details on current programs and exhibits.
