Adult Programs

                              

Wolves are as fascinating to adults as they are to kids. They are a legendary, controversial, and important native species to study and understand.

Our adult programs are tailored to meet the interests and needs of the group. This is a unique opportunity to get a glimpse into the world of wolves.

Topics may include:

--  Wolf biology, including the physical characteristics of wolves

--  The social wolf--wolf pack (family) dynamics, including stories
     of
wolves in the wild, taken from the observations of wolf 
     biologists in the field

--  The role of the wolf in the ecosystem

--  The wolves of Oregon and Washington -population and
     distribution 

--  Successes and challenges of wolf recovery, including the
     state and federal
