Adirondack Wildlife is a rehabilitation and education organization, whose mission is to take in, rehabilitate and, whenever possible, to return to the wild, injured or otherwise disabled wildlife, working with local veterinarians and volunteers. In addition, we run educational programs and presentations, primarily working with non-releasable birds of prey and wolves, to foster compassion, tolerance and understanding of wildlife, particularly with respect to safely interacting with wildlife, and understanding the valuable role predators play in the over health of our eco-system. The three aspects of the educational role are maintaining a mile–long, guided, interpretive trail at the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge and Rehab Center, and conducting interactive presentations at the Center, and at public venues, such as schools, colleges, fairs and churches. We have no Federal, State or Local Funding, anare completely funded by donations, which are gratefully accepted.

Adirondack Wildlife is located at 977 Springfield Road, in Wilmington, New York, on 50 acres, along the West Branch of the Ausable River, about a mile downstream from Whiteface Mountain, on that section of the river called "Lake Everest". Wendy has Federal and State licences for wildlife rehabilitation and wildlife education, and we are available to do presentations for schools, churches and other organizations. We are open to the Public from 10 AM tto 4 PM daily, except for Tuesdays and Wednesdays, when we are closed.

  • This was the best ending to our trip to the Adirondacks. We got there right at open, and the founder of the refuge taught the small group that was forming around the wolf pen about the wolfs and coyotes. I loved how they really seemed to care about the animals and caring for them. All of their cages are large, plus they walk them every day through their trails.
  • The wolves were beautiful and precious. As were all of the other animals that are also there. They are very informative with their knowledge of them and very friendly. Definitely will have to go back again to visit Kiska and Pippin. I could have spent hours there.
