Gather November 7, Celebrate Progress toward Protecting Wolves

On what would have been the first day of Minnesota’s trophy wolf hunt, we will gather to cheer wolves still living this fall because there will not be a trophy hunt.  You are invited to join us at The Happy Gnome’s upstairs private room in St. Paul on November 7.  We will discuss the federal status of wolves, hear from our local state legislators who will work with us to end snaring, and end Minnesota’s wolf hunt. 

Join us from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM at The Happy Gnome’s upstairs room, 498 Selby Avenue, St. Paul, MN 55102.  Please RSVP to volunteer@howlingforwolves.org.  This way we can order the appropriate amount of food.  We have also requested some vegan options. There is no charge and all are encouraged to attend, even if you decide at the last minute.  Come enjoy the company of other wolf advocates!

Where: Hennepin County Library

This Tuesday evening we have meeting in a conference room at the library (Hennepin County Library) in Plymouth to go over what will be happening in the Howling for Wolves booth this year at the FAIR.  As we've mentioned before, instead of having people fill out paper slips, we're going to have them enter their information right into laptops that we'll have right in the booth.  It's simple and easy to do, but we just want to go over things before the booth actually opens.

We also plan to hand out tickets and the new T-shirts.

The Plymouth Library is located at 15700 36th Avenue North - link to directions is below:
