Family activities scheduled throughout the day on the 31-acre campus will range from fly fishing and nature scavenger hunts to building a fort or just laying back and watching the clouds as they pass in the sky above.
In addition to his public appearance at the Wild Center May 2, Louv is also scheduled to meet in Lake Placid that evening with state officials and leaders in the public health, medical, child care, and education fields. This invitation-only meeting aims to introduce Louv and his concepts and generate support for the creation of an organized state-wide initiative.
Louv will also officially open The Pines nature play area at The Wild Center. The Pines is a new type of play area designed entirely with nature in mind. Kids are encouraged to explore the play area on their own terms and in their own time.
The event will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Adirondack Medical Center, North Country Public Radio, the Adirondack Museum, Evergreen Fund at Adirondack Community Trust, International Paper and Stewart's Shops are sponsors of the event.
