The Refuge Center is located at 977 Springfield Road, in Wilmington, New York, on 50 acres, along the West Branch of the Ausable River, about a mile downstream from Whiteface Mountain, on that section of the river called "Lake Everest."  We are available to do presentations with wildlife for schools, churches, hotels and other organizations. For sample, click here.

When you work with support from local veterinarians to care for sick or injured wildlife, there are three common outcomes: naturally, some animals die despite your best efforts, while most recover to the point where they are able to forage and/ or hunt, and can be released into the wild.  The critters who remain in our care, and are used in educational demonstrations and displays, are animals who are generally healthy, but are no longer able to make a living in nature.

The Refuge Center includes two miles of educational hiking trails, and a Public Fishing Access trail, which winds its way along the West Branch of the Ausable River and along three river sloughs, through forest and meadow. Our enclosures for education birds include Red-Tailed Hawks, Broad-Winged Hawks, Rough-Legged Hawks, Swainsons Hawks, Peregrine Falcons, Great Horned Owls, Snowy Owls, Barred Owls, Screech Owls, Turkey Vultures and Ravens.  The refuge mascots are three gray wolves, and two black bears. If you're in the area, stop by and see what's going on!

"A knowledge of the existence of something we cannot penetrate, of the manifestations of the profoundest reason
and the most radiant beauty  - it is this knowledge and this emotion that constitute the truly religious attitude;
 in this sense, and this alone, I am a deeply religious man."
Albert Einstein

Which Came First, Feathers or Flight?

The Treasure By Robinson Jeffers

Mountains, a moment’s earth-waves rising and hollowing; the earth too’s an ephemerid; the stars—
Short-lived as grass the stars quicken in the nebula and dry in their summer, they spiral
Blind up space, scattered black seeds of a future; nothing lives long, the whole sky’s
Recurrences tick the seconds of the hours of the ages of the gulf before birth, and the gulf
After death is like dated: to labor eighty years in a notch of eternity is nothing too tiresome,
Enormous repose after, enormous repose before, the flash of activity.
Surely you never have dreamed the incredible depths were prologue and epilogue merely
To the surface play in the sun, the instant of life, what is called life? I fancy
That silence is the thing, this noise a found word for it; interjection, a jump of the breath at that silence;
Stars burn, grass grows, men breathe: as a man finding treasure says “Ah!” but the treasure’s the essence:
Before the man spoke it was there, and after he has spoken he gathers it, inexhaustible treasure.

I believe in the cosmos.  All of us are linked to the cosmos. So nature is my god.
 To me, nature is sacred. Trees are my temples and forests are  my cathedrals.

Places to Stay When Visiting the Refuge with Friends & Family

"Those who dwell...among the beauties and  mysteries of the earth are never alone or weary of life. . .
Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.
The more clearly we can focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the universe about us,
the less taste we shall  have for destruction." 

Rachel Carson
