Wolves and DeerUpdate from the Superior National Forest Wolf and Deer Project – Presented by Dr. Shannon Barber-Meyer
Tuesday, August 27 – 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. CDT
Webinar rate: $20 Non-members, $15 Members

Dr. Shannon Barber-Meyer is a Research Wildlife Biologist with the U.S. Geological Survey studying wolves and their prey in the Superior National Forest (northeastern Minnesota). This project was started in 1964 by Dr. L. David Mech to examine wolf and deer populations, their effect on each other, and other factors that may affect them both. Shannon will present a brief background of the study, touch on some interesting findings from the long-term research, and highlight some exciting new research directions (including a study involving the International Wolf Center wolves). Join us for this fascinating discussion on the wolves and deer of the Northwoods!

First Days of Fall Webinar Webinar
Monday, September 23 – 6 p.m. CDT
Webinar rate: $15 Non-members, $12 Members

The beginning of fall is a time for wolves to start showing some seasonal dominance, days are getting shorter, nights are cooler and the potential for snow is right around the corner. These conditions stimulate some active times at the wolf exhibit and the start of a great season for viewers of our Exhibit Pack.

Full Moon Webinar
Saturday, October 12 – 6 p.m. CDT
Webinar rate: $15 Non-members, $12 Members

Join us for this one-hour webinar where we spend time with the Exhibit Pack just hours before their scheduled carcass feeding. With the smell of a food coming from the Wolf Care Center and a pack of wolves anticipating a feeding, we are likely to record some excitement and even a howl or two.  

Winter is Here Webinar
Friday, December 13 – 4 p.m. CST
Webinar rate: $15 Non-members, $12 Members

Wolves have a two-coat system, the long thick guard hairs that dictate the color of their pelage and the dense undercoat that enhances the wolves’ physical size in winter. Join us for this one-hour webinar to gain some appreciation for the adaptations that aid in winter survival.
