Spring Working for Wolves: 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 trees in the Exhibit and the the Retired Pack enclosure.

Fall Working for Wolves: Spend a weekend “Workin’ for Wolves” assisting the wolf care staff with some winterization projects. In the fall, we have to make sure any pond devices are shut down and ready for freezing while the drinking water supply has a functioning heat source that keeps the drinking water thawed. Fall projects can also provide a good chance to burn debris and make sure fence edges are ready for snow and ice build-up.
