Land Between The Lakes (LBL) National Recreation Area celebrates Wolf Week Oct. 8 – 14.

Join us at the Woodlands Nature Station to learn more about these intelligent, awe-inspiring, and rare animals. Fun, educational programs will be featured throughout the week for wolf enthusiasts of all ages.

The Nature Station participates in the Red Wolf Recovery Program, a captive breeding program for the endangered red wolf.

“Red wolves were once declared officially extinct in the wild. Thanks to recovery efforts, they have been reintroduced into a wildlife refuge in North Carolina. Yet, red wolves are still designated as a critically endangered species. Wolf Week is an opportunity to learn about how LBL is helping in the recovery of these amazing creatures,” said Carrie Szwed, Public Programs Coordinator at the NS.

Visitors to the NS will have an opportunity to view captive red wolves during special programs designed for Wolf Week and learn more about this rare animal and its comeback from the brink of extinction.
