Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be running our usual in-person programs in 2021.  Click HERE for a statement from our Program Director.


Hello WMS prospective students,

Below is our presentation schedule starting December 16th and running through the middle of March!  While it isn't our traditional program in the majestic Adirondack Park, it will be a fun and educational winter.  The presentations or interactive workshops will be given in zoom or Facebook live every Wednesday night at 8pm eastern.  To get more information about a presentation or to register please go to the ADK Events Calendar. Registration is free this winter, however an ADK membership is required to attend.


We will be collecting donations towards our scholarship fund, details about our scholarship and how to donate will be given at the presentation.  If you have any questions don't hesitate to use our question form on the contact page.  


We look forward to digitally seeing you this winter and in person in the future!



Jeremy and Rich

Director and Assistant Director WMS 2021
