The Call of the Wild

By Linda Tancs

Just a 40-minute drive from Lake Placid, New York, Tupper Lake is one of those old, quaint lumber milling towns.   Today you’ll find a different calling echoing from the virgin pines and hardwoods of this Adirondack tourist destination–the call of the wild.  The Wild Center, a 31-acre site of trails and overlooks, gives visitors ample opportunity to interact with the natural world.  The area boasts moose, river otters, peregrine falcons and native trout.  A new exhibit, Planet Adirondack, features a floating interactive Earth, highlighting the effects of human engineering on the planet.
