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.With our international travel planner, Wilmington attractions like Adirondack Wildlife Refuge can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
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.

Visited yesterday. Pleasant staff. Emily even fed the bears in the rain to entertain us. Not very many animals but birds and owls galore! It's a refuge, so don't expect a zoo.
Cool animals. Not a bad experience. Tough for little kiddos in a stroller though!
