Anders has been studying wolves this week in his summer school class and today his class will be visiting the Wildlife Science Center near Forest Lake, Minnesota and visit wolves who are living at the center. Thank you to Ms. Lyons and your incredible enthusiasm that has spread to our enthusiastic learner!
WSC was founded as a federally funded research facility in 1976, in order to observe and document the physiology and behavior of a captive population of gray wolves. Although the Center no longer receives federal funding, its distinctive research continues. However, since achieving 501(c)(3) status in 1991 it has concentrated its assets and knowledge on educational programming. It offers both on and offsite interactive presentations and overnight camping experiences to Minnesota youth by partnering with school and community-based organizations. Through its research and educational efforts, the WSC’s expertise is often sought by international, national, and regional institutions, regarding the care, handling, breeding, and ecological significance of wolves.
