Following the showing of the film, Nancy Warren, Executive Director and Great Lakes Regional Director for the National WolfWatcher Coalition, will answer any questions that viewers may have. This coalition is a non-profit volunteer organization whose purpose is to educate, advocate, and participate in the recovery and protection of wolves.

There is no admission charge to attend thanks to sponsorship by the National WolfWatcher Coalition and the Friends of the Peter White Public Library. For more information, visit www.pwpl.info or call 226-4318.
