You’re invited to the puppy party! Please join the WNC Nature Center in celebrating our seven Red Wolf pups’ first birthday and Endangered Species Day on Friday, May 17, from 11am-3pm. We will be offering multiple opportunities to learn more about Red Wolves and festive activities to ring in the occasion! Regular admission to the WNC Nature Center is required.

Looking for the perfect Red Wolf birthday present? Bring your old electronic devices to the front desk to be recycled with ECO-CELL. All proceeds from ECO-CELL gets donated to the Red Wolf Coalition to continue conservation efforts. We accept cell phones, smartphones, iPads, iPods, tablets, GPS, smartwatches, digital cameras, and all the cords and cables that come with them.
