The Wild Walk
The second phase in the development of The Wild Center, Wild Walk adds a major outdoor exhibition and recreational component to the visitor experience. Its walkways, over five hundred feet in length, rise from ground level to forty feet in the air as they thread through the forest canopy, finally revealing an expansive view over the Adirondack Mountains. Ubertwig, Spider Web, the Snag and the Eagles Nest allow for exploration and discovery. Cable suspension bridges provide a bit of a thrill along the way. The genesis of the design was found in the form of the surrounding conifers. Exhibits, located on the several platforms, will focus on the interpretation of life in the Adirondack woodlands. Ground was broken in August of 2013. Completion is scheduled for 2015.
