    December Sponsors

    banner-about

    unnamed

    This month’s sponsor is the California Wolf Center. An amazing non-profit that “is dedicated to the recovery of wolves in the wildlands they once roamed. We envision a landscape where wolves thrive in healthy ecosystems and wolves and humans successfully coexist.”

    “The California Wolf Center is a one-of-a-kind, conservation, education, and research center dedicated to wolf recovery in the wild. Our physical location is 50 miles east of San Diego, near the town of Julian, California. We are a state-wide organization with staff and volunteers also working in Northern California striving to pave the way for the return of wolves in our state. Founded in 1977 to educate the public about wildlife and ecology, the Center is currently home to several packs of gray wolves, some of which play an important role in our educational programs. These wolves serve as ambassadors representing wolves in the wild. We also host highly endangered Mexican gray wolves, now being reintroduced into the southwestern United States. A visit to the Center provides a unique experience involving one of the most charismatic and controversial species in North American history.”

    The California Wolf Center will  be present at this month’s event. Stop by the table to learn more about the organization, how to visit the center or how to donate to their cause.

    Question of the Month: “What actions have you taken to combat climate change?”

    In the Spotlight

    World leaders met in New York City late September to discuss global climate change and to build momentum for the 2015 UN Climate Summit in Paris, where there are hopes of creating a binding international agreement. In response to the gathering, leaders and activists took their own steps to voice their concerns about climate change:

    *On September 21st, we saw the largest climate march in history.

    *Louie Schwartzberg’s Climate Summit film delivers a powerful and inspiring message. See the short film, What’s Possible, here.

    “They will either remember us as the generation that destroyed its home, or the one that finally came to respect it. We have every reason in the world to ACT.”
