Adirondack Interpretive Center

The AIC is your one-stop source for outstanding learning experiences in the central Adirondacks!

We offer some great opportunities to supplement your Adirondack experience:

  • Summer Science Squad
    This program is designed for children 7-12 years old. Explorers will spend the day (9am-4pm) investigating the natural environment with hands-on learning.
  • Huntington Lecture Series
    Join us Thursday nights in July and August for presentations that range in topic from ecology to history to philosophy.
  • Artist in Residence Program
    The Artist in Residence program at the Newcomb Campus is designed to enrich the experiences of Adirondack Park residents and visitors and to demonstrate our commitment to conversations and programs that bridge science and the arts.
