Free Meet A Wolf
Meet a friendly wolf (or two!) and celebrate the “Howl-i-days” on Sunday December 15, 2013.
This free wolf encounter event is one to note on your calendar for Sunday if you’re as fascinated as I am by these beautiful and mysterious beasts. Meet the real thing for yourself in a Wolf Meet and Greet presentation on December 15 at 12:30 pm at the Open Space Visitor Center.
Stephanie Kaylan of the Wanagi Wolf Fund will take at least two of her friendly wolves or wolf-dogs along. Hokshila the timber wolf will be there, and Bindi the wolf too. I know from experience that Stephanie is a very lively and interesting speaker on the subject of wolves and their relationship with humans. In fact, you can read my profile of her in a series I wrote of MSN.com Albuquerque Insider Profiles for their Re:Discover Albuquerque project.
The family-friendly event is free, although donations to the non-profit Wanagi Wolf Fund are welcome as this is a holiday fundraiser. There will also be a photo-op with a wolf for a donation. You can shop for wolf calendars, stocking stuffers and wolf-fur filled ornaments, and check out the raffle.
It’s usually wise to arrive early to be sure of a seat at the beginning of the presentation, as late arrivals are not always guaranteed admission.
Interesting note: Wanagi is Lakota for “The one who guards and protects the spirits of those who have passed onward.”
