Rob Gudger brings his Wolf Tales educational program to two local libraries in the coming days.
Known as “Trapper Rob,” the Haywood County-based wildlife biologist will conduct events at the Jackson County Public Library in Sylva on Tuesday, June 26, and at the Albert Carlton-Cashiers Community Library in Cashiers on Friday, July 6. The program, designed for children of all ages, features two juvenile wolves.
The program lasts about an hour and participants will have a chance to interact with a wolf and learn about their habits. Topics include the hunting and social behaviors of wolves, the benefits of protecting wild wolves in natural ecosystems, conservation efforts, dispelling myths and misconceptions, and more. The wolves are gentle and Trapper Rob encourages participants to pet them.
The start time of each program was not available at press time. Call the Sylva Library at 828.586.2016 or the Albert Carlton-Cashiers Community Library in Cashiers at 828743.0215.
