The Southbury Public Library invites anyone interested to virtually attend a Virtual Field Trip to the Wolf Conservation Center through the library on Tuesday, June 22, 2021 from 2:00-3:45pm.

Experience the wonderful world of wolves from your own home! In this virtual field trip to the Wolf Conservation Center (WCC) in Salem, NY, learn about the history and biology of wolves in North America, and meet the WCC's ambassador wolves Alawa, Zephyr, and Nikai. This real-time virtual field trip will be coming to us live from the WCC as an educator accompanies Alawa, Zephyr, and Nikai to teach us all about one of North America’s most fascinating animals. There's even a chance to potentially see endangered Red Wolves and Mexican Gray Wolves!

About the Wolf Conservation Center: Located in South Salem, NY, the Wolf Conservation Center (WCC) teaches people about wolves, their relationship to the environment, and the human role in protecting their future. Since 1999, the WCC has been working to protect and preserve wolves in North America through science-based education, advocacy, and participation in the federal recovery and release programs for two critically endangered wolf species: the Mexican gray wolf and red wolf.
