Greetings wolf enthusiasts!
Thanks for your interest in TWIN – we’re a non- profit wolf education group, founded in 1989. TWIN is based in Central Wisconsin, and our sole focus is on science-based educational outreach, expressed through the half-dozen or so Wolf Ecology Workshops we present each winter.
Our award-winning workshops, which cover two days of intensive learning, are presented by instructors who have been instrumental in wolf recovery in the Western Great Lakes, including wolf biologist and author Dick Thiel. The workshops cover the gamut of wolf topics, from the physiology and behavior of the animal, to research and monitoring techniques, and to the political vagaries that have governed the management of this iconic species. Each workshop also includes a field trip into wolf territory, where we find and follow wolf tracks, exploring the landscape from the perspective of this keystone predator.
We hope to see you at an upcoming workshop – the 2016 dates are now set, and we'll follow up soon with the details. We'll be at Beaver Creek Reserve near Eau Claire, WI on January 30/31, Sandhill Outdoor Skills Center near Babcock, WI on February 6/7, and Treehaven near Tomahawk, WI on February 13/14. Or if you'd like us to address your organization at some other time, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org - we can tailor our presentation to your time frame and area(s) of interest.
In the meantime, join our group! For just $12 a year, you’ll receive a weekly e-newsletter with all the worldwide wolf news for the week, and you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that your funds are being used to foster continuing awareness and acceptance of wolves.
If you live in Central Wisconsin, keep an eye on our website for TWIN Board Meeting dates and consider attending a meeting – you may have talents that we can use to further our mission!
