Elma Timberland Library turns into “Wolf Café”


What’s on the menu at the wolf café? — a hands-on workshop and a glimpse into the life of the enigmatic carnivore. Wolf Haven International, a nonprofit wolf sanctuary and education and conservation organization, will be at the Elma Timberland Library with its all-ages “Wolf Café” program on Wednesday, March 12, from 5:30-6:30 p.m.

Wolf Haven educators will show how the wolf is adapted for its role as a key predator. They’ll talk about what wolves eat and how natural predators are important in maintaining a healthy planet. Program participants will learn how the roles of predator and prey species are determined by their adaptations and survival strategy.

Hands-on activities include examining a variety of wolf skulls and teeth as well as skulls, horns and antlers of the wolf’s prey. A question and answer session will follow.

Wolf Haven International is based in Tenino. Its mission is to “conserve and protect wolves and their habitat.” Wolf Haven’s website is www.wolfhaven.org.

The program is sponsored by Friends of the Elma Timberland Library. The library is located at 118 N First St. For more information, call the library at (360) 482-3737 or visit www.TRL.org.
