Thursday, July 22nd at 7:00 pm

This is a virtual Zoom program. Email Kim in order to receive the link to attend. It is also part of the multi-library One Book, Many Neighbors summer reading program.

We're excited to present this program from the International Wolf Center. The Minnesota based organization strives to educate about wolves and their role in the environment.

This program will showcase the complicated relationship between wolves and humans and how conflict often arises where they live in the same environment. The International Wolf Center will discuss these conflicts and the relationship as well as talk about the myths and misinformation that often contributes to the fear or misunderstanding of wolves. We'll also learn ideas for how wolves and humans can peacefully co-exist.
