As Minnesota takes over management of the gray wolf population, Wright County residents will have a chance to learn more about them.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced in December it was removing the wolf from the federal threatened species list. The DNR says Minesota has about 3,000 gray wolves, the largest population in the continental United States.
In early February, the Wildlife Science Center will hold a class on wolves at Robert Ney Regional Park in Maple Lake. The advertisement for the class calls the gray wold “one of our most charismatic predators.” Visitors will see skulls, pelts and other wolf artifacts. They’ll also see a demonstration of radio telemetry used to track wolves.
The class will be held Sunday, February 5th from 2-3 p.m.. The pre-registration is this Friday (January 27th). To register, contact the Wright County Parks office at 763-682-7693 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
