Home-Schoolers Have a Howling Good Time Learning About Wolves

On December 12th, Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge ORP King-Wrenn and Zoo educator, Christina Brown, presented a program about the Mexican Gray wolf to a home schooling families group. The program was held at the Rio Grande Zoo in Albuquerque and included an opportunity to view the zoo’s wolf pack.

            Prior to the presentation, several of the home schooling parents had attended the teacher workshop offered by the Zoo and Refuge and received copies of the Mexican gray wolf educators guide. The parents had also borrowed one of the Refuge’s wolf education kits in preparation for their zoo visit. It was very rewarding to see educators and students making the most of the resources that the Refuge offers. The 20 children who participated in the event had clearly learned quite a bit about wolves and wolf recovery. The parents who attend learned as well.
