The Wild Center in Tupper Lake, NY, has invited building and trades professionals, students and all interested individuals to learn about the latest in sustainable building practices at the Adirondack Building Conference, set for Thursday, March 23rd. The conference will showcase ultra-efficient methods for building projects in the region, with insights from a wide range of industry experts.
During the event, attendees will hear case studies from the region, network with each other and speak directly with vendors. The education continues with intensive break-out sessions, featuring local and regional success stories.
Topics at this year’s event include heat pumps, marketing your business, funding opportunities and how to meet the growing demand of electrifying buildings.
Featured speakers include:
· Jacob Deva Racusin, New Frameworks;
· Tansy Massey-Greene, RMI; and
· Jesse Schwartzberg, Black Mountain Architecture.
Last summer, The Wild Center unveiled a 3,000-square-foot exhibition, “Climate Solutions,” which was recognized by the Museum Association of New York (MANY) for its “Excellence in Design.” The exhibit shares stories and inspiration across four areas that deal with climate change – energy, food, natural world and action – including a building structure explaining how architects and builders rely on ultra-efficient building materials, renewable energy and site design.
Registration is now open, and includes access to all workshops, lunch at The Wild Center, entry to door prizes, and end-of-the-day Raquette River Brewing beer tasting. For more information on this event, click here.

Unfortunately, I’ll be out of town that day. Will the conference be recorded for later viewing?
