CORNWALL-ON-HUDSON — The Hudson Highlands Nature Museum will host “Meet Atka — A Live Gray Wolf” at 4:30 p.m. and again at 6 p.m. Nov. 2 at the Wildlife Education Center, 25 Boulevard, Cornwall-on-Hudson.
This program will include an up-close encounter with this important but misunderstood predator.
“Wolves were extirpated from New York over 100 years ago,” said Pam Golben, environmental educator. “However, they remain an integral part of the ecosystem in other parts of North America.”
Atka is the “Ambassador Wolf” of the Wolf Conservation Center of South Salem. 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 them for future generations.
This program is for adults with or without children and children age 6 and older. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
The cost is $22, $16 children, with a $4 discount for museum members. Prepaid reservations are required. This is an indoor program, held rain or shine. For prepaid online registration and more information, go to hhnaturemuseum.org or call 534-5506, ext. 204.
