Take a walk on the wild side and join us at the Wolf Conservation Center (WCC) as we explore the natural world and give the young animal lover in your family a chance to thrive among wolves and other woodland critters! Our afterschool program tailored for grades 2-5 gives ample opportunity to be immersed in the natural world while also focusing on activities centered around ecology, wildlife, wolf conservation and biology, and more. Each session involves activities including games or crafts that are designed to teach information about wolves and nature, while also having fun!

The program includes opportunities for your child to:

  • Learn all about wolves: Wolf 101.
  • Discover the various animals living in Northeast forests – coyotes, foxes, bobcats, and more!
  • Create crafts using natural materials.
  • Play a unique game of hide and seek using tracking and telemetry tools that real wolf biologists use in the field!
  • Create plaster paw prints.  They’re great for show and tell!
  • Learn how to set wildlife cameras and capture photos of elusive animals.
  • Cook delicious snacks over a campfire.
  • And more!
