Wolf Conservation Center Launches 'Tracks to the Future'

“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”
~ Benjamin Franklin

One of the Wolf Conservation Center's most important priorities includes providing exceptional on site as well as traveling wolf ambassador educational programs that teach people about wolves and the human role in protecting their future.

Today, we are happy to announce that our mission has expanded! Beginning in January, the WCC's Education Team will be piloting a new collaborative partnership with the teachers of Haviland Middle School (Hyde Park, NY).

The WCC's “Tracks to the Future” curriculum enables students to learn many of the required common core skills in Reading, Writing, Science and Social Studies while using the theme of wolf conservation as its integrating theme. The unit also provides service learning opportunities that enable students to participate in real-world community-based projects related to wolf and wildlife issues.

Other schools have expressed similar interest in partnerships, and we will be sharing our progress with you in future updates throughout 2014.
