Trains, Planes, and Elephants!


Rebecca Bose, the curator at the WCC, and Chris Evers, a longtime volunteer, recently returned from several weeks spent traveling in India. Chris is a naturalist who founded and runs Animal Embassy, which helps educate people about animals and the environment through the use of live ambassador animals and multimedia presentations. He will be presenting a special program at the Stamford Museum in Connecticut on January 30 about his and Rebecca's adventures in India. There will be slides (we've been lucky to already see some of Rebecca's incredible photos from their close encounters with tigers) and even a few live animals that call this part of Asia home.

There will be 2 presentations at the Bendel Mansion, the main building at the Stamford Museum: an early show from 5:30pm - 6:30 pm for ages 3-6, and a later show from 7pm - 8:30 pm for ages 6 and older.

NOTE: space is limited for the event, so pre-registration is required. Please call 203.322.1646 ext. 6521 to register.
There is also a small fee: Museum Members: $5 | Non-members: $8

A bunch of us from the Wolf Center will be there and we hope some of you can join us. (Say hello if you see one of us wearing WCC gear.) It should be a fascinating and fun evening!
