Free Fun Family Event to Celebrate New York’s WILD

WCC’s Family Walk to Protect America’s Wild Heritage 
Wednesday, August 13th 
1PM – 3PM 
Shelter 5

The Wolf Conservation Center’s second annual service-learning event, “WCC’s Family Walk to Protect America’s Wild Heritage,” invites children to celebrate the wildlife and wild lands of the largest park in the contiguous United States – New York State’s Adirondack State Park!

The FREE outdoor adventure will lead participants through a circuit of educational workshops about the array of NY’s native wildlife and give opportunities to earn free raffle tickets for exciting prizes. In addition to these experiences, Northeast Wolf Coalition Junior representative Tommy Whiteley will present a keynote address and Wolf Conservation Center Ambassador Wolf Atka will lead all in a group howl. Each child will receive Adirondack Council’s “Wild Characters of the Adirondacks” booklet along with a certificate that acknowledges their participation.

The event will be held on Wednesday, August 13th from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation (Shelter 5) at 6 Reservation Road in Cross River, NY. Reservations are not required, but please let us know if you plan to attend by e-mailing

 We hope you can join us on this special day to raise awareness for New York’s wild beauty!
