Is your TROOP ready to cry wolf!
My name is Maggie and I am the Managing Director of the Wolf Conservation Center (WCC). The WCC is headquartered in South Salem, New York and I would like to extend our education programming to your SCOUTS in the coming year. All of our educational programs are designed to conform to New York State Standards for Science Education and touch on a variety of disciplines from biology to history. Field tested throughout the northeast, our programs have received rave reviews everywhere we present them.
We provide an wonderful opportunity for scouts of all ages to experience the WCC’s educational message. Scouting groups can arrange a visit to our facility in South Salem and experience our Ambassador wolves and learn about the WCC’s Species Survival Program. Our programs are adaptable to all age levels and can be held indoors or out. Our experienced Ambassador wolf, Atka, never fails to impress children and adults alike.
With the mission to educate people about wolves, their relationship in the environment and the human role in protecting their future, the WCC has put together an informative and entertaining look at the history of wolves in North America, wolf biology, and the mythology that surrounds this misunderstood predator. All of our presentations strive to address four major points:
• Wild wolves are not dangerous to humans
• Wolves play a vital role in keeping our ecosystems healthy- Providing space for predator and prey interactions can safeguard not only many species of plant and animal but our own clean air and water.
• Wolves are not pets- Although closely related to dogs, wolves are wild animals and will not live by our rules
• Everyone has the ability and responsibility to affect the world- In addition to educating about wolves; WCC presentations have a pro-active, empowering message for the audience. We each have a voice and the right to use it in order to safeguard our future and the future of generations to come.
Please take a moment to explore the WCC web site at http://www.nywolf.org and feel free to contact us with any questions or comments. I look forward to hearing from you and we invite your troop to visit the WCC for an experience that your scouts and their families will remember for the rest of their lives.
Thank you for your time.
