The public can meet a wolf named Atka during an event at Shelton’s St. Joseph School on Saturday, Sept. 14 at 1 p.m. The program will feature an hour-long presentation followed by an opportunity to meet Atka.

Free tickets now are available at the St. Joseph School office, 430 Coram Ave., and at the Plumb Memorial Library children’s department. The event, presented by the Plumb Memorial Library and St. Joseph School, is open to children of all ages and adults.

Teaching about wolves

Event sponsors are Friends of the Shelton Libraries and the Wolf Conservation Center. The Westchester County, N.Y.-based nonprofit Wolf Conservation Center is an environmental education organization that works to promote wolf conservation by teaching about wolves, their relationship to the environment, and the role of humans in protecting their future.

Event organizers said donations will be accepted by those who participate in the Shelton event, payable to “SJS HSA — Atka.”
