Big News: We're Moving!

We have big news that was announced in our local press today, and we wanted to make sure to share it with you!

The Wolf Conservation Center has received an extremely generous gift in celebration of our 10th Anniversary: A group of long-time WCC supporters has purchased a 7.9-acre property adjacent to the Leon Levy Nature Preserve right here in South Salem, NY and will be donating it to the WCC!

The property has three houses on it - one of which (see photo to the left) will become our New WCC Education Center, with room for a beautiful expanded classroom and a great exhibition area for dynamic and educational showcases! And our Ambassador Wolves will, of course, be coming with us. They will live in a spectacular 8-acre area with ideal, rolling wolf terrain inside the Preserve just up the hill from the classroom.

Making the transition will take time - and money - and we plan to launch a Capital Campaign once we have assumed ownership. But for now, we just want to let you in on the news, and invite you to join Atka, the WCC Staff, and the Board of Trustees on Dec. 3 at "Wine, Wolves & Wonderful News!" at the Waccabuc Country Club to celebrate the Holiday Season and this very special gift (a separate post will be coming soon telling you how to register).

Stay tuned!!
