You can still see the otters, in the behind-the-scenes outdoor otter play yard – a spot normally off-limits to visitors. Wild Center naturalists will hold short live animal encounters and drop-in educational programs throughout the day in specific locations around the outdoor campus.

If you'd like to plan a visit, you'll need to make reservations. The park is limited to 600 guests per day - and 50 per time slot. Each group is allowed to include 10 people or less. To make reservations, visit the wildcenter.org and their reservation page.

The Wild Walk is a suspended trail among the treetops in Tupper Lake, giving visitors a glimpse of the landscape from a whole new perspective. You might even be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of an eagle or other wildlife.
