The Wild Center is located in Tupper Lake. There are numerous lakes and rivers nearby, including nine-mile long Tupper Lake and the Raquette river that runs by the Center’s campus. The town of Tupper Lake has a distinct history of pioneers, loggers, and Adirondack sportsmen. The railway arrived in Tupper in the 1890’s and much of the modern town was built in the boom years that followed. Tupper was the lumber capital of New York in the early 1900’s. You can see the huge site of the giant mill down by the lake shore. Today the site is a public park, and home to local events, including the annual Woodsmen Field Days festival where lumberjack skills are on display every July.
