We’re excited about the upcoming Wolf Awareness Week. The focus of this week is on wolves and their value and importance. You’ll get a chance everyday to meet a keeper and talk about our wolves and wolf conservation.
We’re especially excited to have Kim Wheeler, the executive director of the Red Wolf Coalition here, Wednesday afternoon. She’ll be set up down at the wolf exhibit all afternoon with some neat items and great conversation.
Kim was just honored with the International Wolf Center’s annual Who speaks for Wolves award. This is given each year to a person who has made exceptional contributions to wolf education, both by teaching people how the wolf lives and by placing the wolf in the broader context of humankind’s relationship to nature.
So, Join us Sunday October 11-Saturday October 17. The Keepers will be at the wolf exhibit everyday at 2:00
