This Saturday, Feb. 6, Friends of the Western North Carolina Nature Center will unveil its New Winter Speaker Series on native animals at the Folk Art Center at 10:30 a.m.
Asheville native Warren Parker, retired chief Endangered Species Biologist with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, and the Service’s first national director of the Red Wolf Species Survival program, will talk about the nuts and bolts of this reintroductory program.
Did you know that between 100 and 120 red wolves — the only population of wild red wolves in the world — call North Carolina home?
The program, “The Red Wolf Survives” is free to members of Friends of the WNC Nature Center. A $5 contribution to Friends is suggested at the door for non-members.
The Folk Art Center is located at mile marker 382 on the Blue Ridge Parkway in east Asheville.
Please RSVP to Friends executive director Sarah Oram by February 5 at 828-298-5600 ext. 308, or at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and the number in your party.
