The Wild Center in Tupper Lake has some new family members. Two male North American river otters will make their debut in Otter Falls on Saturday, June 22nd… the same day as the Wild Center’s inaugural You Otter Run/Walk 5K benefitting the Center’s Betsy Lowe Fund for Adirondack Education. The new otters… which so far have yet to be named… will join the Center’s three other otters: Louie, Scarlett, and Squirt. But that won’t take long, because a group of youths from Akwesasne learning about the mammals, will then have the task of discovering suitable names in their native language. The You Otter Run/Walk 5K takes place on Saturday, June 22nd, and is a fundraiser to support education programs for Adirondack school groups coming to The Wild Center. Registration begins at 8am and the race begins at 9. Online advance registration information can be found at
