snowshoeing at the wild centerThe Wild Center, currently open Friday through Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm, is offering free admission to all federal employees and their families through January 31st, in support of them during the government shutdown.

Free admission is offered regardless of whether federal workers have been furloughed or are otherwise affected. Workers will need to show their ID at the Admissions Desk upon entry.

All visitors are welcome to a free snowshoe rental to hit the trails and explore on their own or on a guided naturalist walk. Relax inside with The Wild Center’s river otters. See a featured film or enjoy a warm beverage as you explore the exhibits and see an Adirondack animal up close during an animal encounter.

The Wild Center is located at 45 Museum Drive, Tupper Lake. For more information about the Wild Center visit their website.
