Know Before You Go
You will be outside and inside - so please dress for comfort and the season. Remember sunblock in summer and snow boots in winter. We recommend layers as Adirondack weather is full of surprises.
The Wild Center welcomes diverse visitors from all backgrounds and has worked hard to make your time here a respite. We hope you enjoy who and what’s around you safely. To support positive visits, the Center expects the following from all Visitors:
- Keep Kids Safe. Although we can see the light at the end of the Covid tunnel, many of our youngest visitors are not yet eligible for the vaccine - so we all need to help keep them safe.
- Maintain a safe physical distance. You must maintain at least 6 feet between your group and the next visitor. Please do not crowd or rush other visitors during your tour, and please do not linger too long holding up the groups behind you.
- Respect others. Be courteous to those around you in word and deed.
- Assume good intentions. Should a conflict arise please do not touch or verbally interact with other visitors - child or adult. If you need assistance, ask a Wild Center staff member.
