The Land Orange Trust Cries ‘Wolf!’

The Orange Land Trust invites the public to attend their Annual Meeting, to be held Thursday, May

28, 7 p.m., at High Plains Community Center on Orange Center Road.

Following a short business meeting,

the Orange Land Trust hosts a visit from Atka,

the Wolf Conservation Center’s Arctic Gray Wolf.


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 WCC teaches the broader

message of conservation, ecological balance, and personal

responsibility for improved human stewardship of our world.


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 (WCC) 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. For more information
