In connection with the New Canaan Historical Society’s newest exhibit, Seeing Red: Little Red Riding Hood Visits the New Canaan Historical Society, the Society is proud to present an informative and entertaining live wolf program. On January 12, 2013 at 3pm the Wolf Conservation Center will discuss the mythology, biology and ecology of wolf families and bring their oldest ambassador wolf, a beautiful arctic wolf named Atka, to the Society located at 13 Oenoke Ridge Road in New Canaan.
Adults and children will marvel at Atka while learning about the history of wolves and why this time of year is a special time for wolf packs in North America. Come discover how wolf families search out prey and how their pups prepare for their first winter season. Atka is a beautiful wolf who loves to meet people, and, as a great "wolf teacher," he will educate all of us on the importance of his wild "brothers and sisters"! Tickets to attend the program are $10, or continue the fun and visit the exhibit too for the cost of $13. Call 203-966-1776 to make your
reservations today and don’t forget your cameras!
