WILD!!




The Wild Center

The Natural History Museum of the Adirondacks is a natural history museum that opened July 4th, 2006 in New York State's Adirondack Park. The Wild Center occupies a 31 acre site in the town of Tupper Lake, New York, the approximate geographic center of the 6,000,000 acre Adirondack Park. The Wild Center has living exhibits, some of which are outdoors. There are exhibits on Bogs, Alpine Ecosystems, Rivers, Lakes, and the Ice Age. The Museum is open year round.

This is a view from a bridge over the pond on the back of the building.

This is an otter that is swimming in a display inside the building.

These are 2 painted turtles sunning themselves.

I love these pictures and if I am ever on that side of the country again I have to check out that place. Turtle photo my favorite because we had red eared sliders in FL. Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day.
