Navajo State Park to host WolfWood program

Quality of life is an inherent right of all creatures.

This affirmation speaks to the core of WolfWood Refuge and Adoption Center. The state-licensed, non-profit sanctuary in Ignacio provides a safe haven for unwanted or homeless wolves and wolf/dogs. In addition, the staff makes every effort to find permanent homes for potential adoptable animals.

WolfWood also provides extensive information and education in wolf and wolf/dog behavior and the issues surrounding them. Seminars are offered by the WolfWood staff, and on Saturday, Aug. 28, Navajo State Park will be the setting for a WolfWood Education Program.

Paula Watson, one of the founders of WolfWood, will return to Navajo State Park accompanied by several of the wolf/dogs for an up-close encounter with these special animals. This outreach program will give the public an opportunity to interact with these amazing animals and hear their stories.

The WolfWood staff and animals have been regular presenters at Navajo State Park and their visits have always given the public a memorable experience.

This special program will begin at 7 p.m. on Aug. 28 at the park’s amphitheater. In the event of rainy weather, the program will be moved to the visitor center and will also begin at 7. All Navajo State Park programs are free with a Colorado State Park pass on each vehicle.
