The Orange Land Trust would like to invite you to its Annual Meeting, to be held Thursday, May 28th, 2015 at High Plains Community Center on Orange Center Road at 7 pm. Following a short business meeting, the Orange Land Trust hosts a visit from Atka, the Wolf Conservation Center’s Arctic Gray Wolf. This program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
The program will include an awe-inspiring, up-close encounter with this important, but misunderstood predator. Guests will learn about the history of wolves in the United States, the importance of wolves in a healthy ecosystem and the efforts to save these magnificent creatures for future generations. Through wolves, the Wolf Conservation Center (WCC) teaches the broader message of conservation, ecological balance, and personal responsibility for improved human stewardship of our world. By providing science-based information, the WCC allows wolves and humans to better coexist in our fragile environment, improves our efforts to successfully restore endangered wolves to their ancestral homes in the wild and offers direct exposure to an elusive predator people might not ever see in the wild.
Founded in 1999 the Wolf Conservation Center in South Salem, NY promotes wolf conservation by teaching about wolves, their relationship to the environment and the human role in protecting their future. The WCC accomplishes this mission through onsite and offsite education programs. These programs emphasize wolf biology, the ecological benefits of wolves and other large predators, and the current status of wolf recovery in the United States. The WCC also participates in the Species Survival Plan (SSP) and Recovery Plan for the critically endangered Mexican gray wolf and the red wolf.
