Forever Wild Day 2024

Forever Wild Day 2024

Saturday, July 13 at Heaven Hill Farm

This year’s Forever Wild Day will take place at the beautiful Heaven Hill Farm overlooking the majestic Adirondack High Peaks in Lake Placid, NY. The day will include lunch and award presentation, an optional outing on the Heaven Hill Trails, and time to share your love of the Adirondack Park with friends and fellow conservation advocates.

Heaven Hill Farm is the former farm and home of Henry Uihlein II, a successful businessman, Jersey cow breeder, philanthropist, and sports organizer. At just under 1,000 acres, the estate was incorporated as the Henry Uihlein II and Mildred A. Uihlein Foundation and continues the Uihlein’s tradition of generosity and support for many organizations and aspiring athletes. The Farmhouse is currently used as a meeting facility for not-for-profit organizations.
