Wild Center Raising Money For Remote Flying Camera

Aerial-Medium-size-TWC-640x396The Wild Center has announced a new campaign on Adirondack Gives, Adirondack Foundation’s crowdfunding site for nonprofits, community groups and municipalities.  Soar Above the Adirondacks’ is raising money for The Wild Center to help fund a new remote-controlled flying camera unit.

“The Wild Center is about shifting perspectives and giving you the chance to immerse yourself in the natural world around you,” a statement issued to the press said. “With the addition of an aerial camera platform to the Center’s resources, we’ll be able to do that and more.”

The footage captured from the aerial camera is expected to showcase new vantage points of the natural beauty around The Wild Center and the Adirondack Park. Among the projects the Wild Center would like to undertake with the camera is a preview of their newest exhibit, Wild Walk, including the construction of the bridges and structures in the treetops that make up the new exhibit. Additionally, they hope to be able to create educational videos with unique perspectives on any natural environment.

The project is live at until July 22. The goal is to raise $3,000.

The Wild Center is open daily from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. between Memorial Day and Labor Day.  For more information, visit
