Spend a weekend “Workin’ for Wolves” assisting the wolf care staff with some very specialized projects. The spring projects always involve winter cover hay removal and pond preparation. We will be assessing the winter impact on the retired enclosure projects conducted in the fall of 2017 and likely spend some time putting the finishing touches on those projects.
