  On February 24th and 25th, ORP King-Wrenn led a MGW teacher workshop at the Living Desert State Park and Zoo in Carlsbad, New Mexico. The Refuge and the Park partnered with New Mexico State University to offer the two day workshop to local teachers and zoo docents. The 40 educators participating in the 12 hour program received credit from the University.

The State Park hosted the workshop, providing the unique setting. Living Desert State park is the only State Park in NM that includes a zoo. The Zoo is home to 5 Mexican Gray wolves that were acquired in the fall of 2005. The workshop included opportunities to observe the wolves, an update on the MGW reintroduction program by Shawna Nelson, from the Arizona Dept. of Game and Fish, and a review of the Refuge’s new Teachers Guide to the MGW.

Through the generosity of the Friends of the Living Desert State Park, all attendees were able to receive free copies of the Teacher’s Guide.
