Feared and admired, cursed and revered, wolves are the stuff of legends and a symbol of America’s vanishing wilderness. Their reputation is larger than life; their role in the restoration of America’s wildlife heritage is bigger still. The passionate positive and negative responses that wolves inspire in people have left the issue of their recovery both contentious and undecided, but also full of promise.
Join us to celebrate America’s wolves at a WILD reception featuring special guests U.S. Representative Nita Lowey with remarks by her, and Ambassador Wolf Atka at Winston – a New American restaurant in downtown Mount Kisco, NY!
In addition to an awe-inspiring encounter with this misunderstood predator, 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 these essential creatures for future generations. Interactive activities, wolf crafts, and a surprise treat for Atka the birthday wolf! Drinks and appetizers will be provided.
Sunday, May 17th
4PM – 6PM
