MooseWood 2014 Annual Meeting
Featuring “The Life of a Wolf Pack”

Friday, April 11 at 6 pm

MooseWood Nature Center's 2014 Annual Meeting will be held at the nature Center at Presque Isle on Friday, April 11, starting at 6 pm with a business meeting. Following the short meeting a 2-projector program on the life of a wolf pack will be presented. The program will follow the life of a group of wolves through an entire year exploring their very social lives, raising their pups, finding food and maintaining a territory. The program will also look at the lives of wolves on Isle Royale and their relationship with the moose and beaver on the island, the reintroduction of wolves in Yellowstone National Park and the recent history of wolves in the Upper Peninsula. The program will also highlight recent research analyzing the effects of wolves on their physical environment - the way the landscape changes in their presence. This program was presented in both Glacier and Yellowstone National Parks during the natural reintroduction of wolves in Glacier and prior to the planning stages for the reintroduction program in Yellowstone.
