Events, features and things to do for families in New Hampshire
Holderness - Squam Lakes Natural Science Center is bringing the Mission: Wolf program back to New Hampshire for two shows on Saturday, Oct.13, at 1:30 and 3:30 p.m.
Mission: Wolf was incorporated in 1988 to connect people with nature using hands-on experiential education. Through volunteer internships and traveling education programs, Mission: Wolf inspires individuals to become stewards of the Earth. They currently care for 38 wolves and wolf-dog crosses, all born in captivity, on their 200 acre property in Colorado.
The Ambassador Wolf Tour travels the country with Ambassador Wolves to visit schools, universities, museums, and other public facilities. The program provides a once in a lifetime opportunity: to meet a wolf face-to-face. The impact that an up close experience with a wolf has on people cannot be compared to all the videos, books, and photos combined. A live wolf is a very effective teacher.
The overall message of the Ambassador Wolf Program is one of respect for all things wild and free. Direct interactions with live wolves illustrate wolf behavior, the differences between wolves and dogs, and the need for wolves to return to the wilderness areas of the world. Experience has taught people that the eyes of a wolf, looking into a person's, relate this message louder and stronger than words ever will.
"This is an incredible program to get up close to wolves which we don't normally see in New Hampshire," said Iain MacLeod, Executive Director of Squam Lakes Natural Science Center. "We're very excited to be able to bring this program to New Hampshire for people to experience."
The Mission: Wolf Ambassador Wolf Program will be presented on Saturday, Oct. 13, at 1:30 and 3:30 p.m. by Squam Lakes Natural Science Center. Programs will be held at the Hagerman Auditorium of the Holderness School on Route 175 in Holderness. The program cost is $10 for members and $12 for non-members.
