About the WEC

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 "Birds On The Wing" exhibit in the Ogden Gallery: This interactive and engaging exhibit will provide a new level of engagement for visitors featuring interactive elements for kids of all ages. Join us for a bird picnic, don your own set of wings, settle down in a comfy nest, observe bird behavior and see how your wingspan compares to some of the Hudson Valley’s biggest birds. While you play, find out what makes birds amazing. How do woodpeckers make holes without getting brain damage? Why are hawks so good at hunting? What are birds saying to each other when they make all that noise? Which birds can you expect to see in your back yard?This exhibit made possible in part by The Dorr Foundation
