Wildlife Education Center at Hudson Highlands Nature Museum, Cornwall-on-Hudson

The Wildlife Education Center (WEC) is the home of many animals that can be found in our local woods, fields, ponds and rivers including, rabbits, turtles, frogs, toads, salamanders, snakes and fish. As well as a screech owl, a great horned owl, and of course the crowd favorite, Edgar, our resident crow that says “hello!”

You can also enjoy our on-going family friendly programs and exhibits included in admission:

“Meet the Animals”: Saturdays and Sundays at 1pm & 2:30pm. This program made possible in part by The William Froelich Foundation

The “Stomping Grounds: Habitats of the Hudson Valley” exhibit in the Ogden Gallery:
This exhibit made possible in part by The Dorr Foundation
This interactive and engaging exhibit will provide a new level of engagement for visitors featuring interactive elements for kids of all ages. What’s so special about a beaver pond? What makes areas along the Hudson River unique? What’s the one place in the Hudson Valley that’s protected for migrating, meadow-loving birds? How can we keep these areas wild, but still use them for recreation and learning? Find out more about the vast array of habitat types that are right in your backyard as you explore new interactive elements, toys, books, and games. This indoor space is a great area to spend the afternoon with children.
