Learn about wolves and wolf-hybrids at Navajo program

Colorado Parks and Wildlife

If you’ve ever wanted to learn about wolves, plan to attend a special event Labor Day weekend at Navajo State Park.

Wolfwood Refuge, a wildlife sanctuary in Ignacio, will bring Trinity, a full-blooded wolf, wolf-hybrids and other dogs to the park and present a program about these special animals.

Staff members of Wolfwood will talk about wolves, explain the role of sanctuaries and about their work to preserve wolves. Those attending the program will be allowed to interact with the animals.

Wolfwood is a state-licensed, non-profit facility that promotes the understanding of wolves and their relationships with humans. Members of the organization travel throughout the state and make educational presentations.

All wolves and wolf-hybrids in Colorado are captive. There are no wild wolves in Colorado.

The Wolfwood program is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 31, at the Visitor Center at Navajo State Park. The program is free. Entrance to the park costs $7 per car.

Navajo State Park is located about 30 miles southwest of Pagosa Springs.

For more information about the park or the program, call 883-2208.
