Free Meet A Wolf

Meet a friendly wolf (or two!) on Sunday December 18, 2011.

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. Enough with the werewolves and shape-shifters (sorry Jacob Black/Stephenie Meyer), you can meet the real thing for yourself on December 18 at 12:30 pm at the Open Space Visitor Center.

Stephanie Kaylan of the Wanagi Wolf Fund will bring at least two of her friendly wolves or wolf-dogs to the
Wolf Meet and Greet.  I know from experience that Stephanie is a very lively and interesting speaker on the subject of wolves and their relationship with humans.

The family-friendly event is free, although donations to the non-profit Wanagi Wolf Fund are welcome.  There will also be a photo-op with Hokshila the timber wolf for a $10 donation, and shopping for wolf calendars, photos, and wolf-fur filled ornaments, plus a raffle.

Arrive early to be sure of a seat at the beginning of the talk, as late arrivals aren’t guaranteed admission.

Interesting note: Wanagi is Lakota for “The one who guards and protects the spirits of those who have passed onward.”
