As we move closer to summer, many attractions that were closed last summer are looking ahead to reopening this year. Same goes with the many annual events that people have come to expect throughout the summer and fall months.
For example, The Wild Center in Tupper Lake. While they have been open, visitors have been limited to outdoor attractions such as the Wild Walk. The facility will close for maintenance in April and reopening in May. According to Hillarie Logan-Dechene, deputy director for The Wild Center, the museum will remain an outdoor experience throughout the summer, with the possibility of reopening the building to visitors in the fall.
