Wildcat is a great summer outing for families of all ages to explore and learn about the diverse ecology of the region.

“Wednesdays at Wildcat” begins July 1st and runs through August 26th. Reservations are not required, and programs are geared for all ages. Meet at Guest Services in the Wildcat Base Lodge shortly before 10am. Admission is free, unless the tour requires a trip to the Summit.
