Coming Soon: Northern Forest Room

We are excited to announce the renovation of the AIC's exhibit room! The new exhibit will include three-dimensional and interactive displays on the natural and cultural history of the Northern Forest and Adirondack Park.

The Adirondack Interpretive Center (AIC) offers outstanding learning opportunities in the heart of the Adirondack Park—New York's unique natural, cultural and recreational resource. Managed by the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF), the AIC serves thousands of visitors, local residents and program participants each year.

Visit the AIC as you explore the Adirondacks:

  • Relax in our lobby with views of the surrounding forest and enjoy the birds at our feeders.
  • Speak with a staff naturalist.
  • Explore trails through lakeshore, river, forest and wetland ecosystems.

Educational Programs & Facilities

The AIC offers public programs, events, speaker series, courses and other activities throughout the year to the public as well as school groups. AIC programs provide individuals and groups with opportunities to learn directly from ESF faculty and staff members and guest experts.

ESF's extensive Adirondack facilities provide sites for classes, meetings, conferences and multi-day residential programs.
