Land Between the LakesGolden Pond, KY – Land Between The Lakes (LBL) National Recreation Area is celebrating Wolf Week the entire week of October 10th-16th.  Join us at the Woodlands Nature Station (NS) 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 NS 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.
