Scovill Zoo Wolf Art Collection Opening Reception
Scovill Zoo is unveiling its new Wolf Art Collection on Wednesday, May 9! Presented by the Decatur Parks Foundation, the Scovill Zoo Wolf Art Collection includes paintings, photography and books donated by the estate of William T. Eichenauer that will become the foundation for a new wolf education program at the zoo. The event begins at 5:00 p.m. and is free and open to the public. Two speakers will be in attendance from Wolf Park (Battle Ground, Indiana). Pat Goodman is the primary wolf handler and behavioral researcher and will talk about wolf habitats and the “state of wolves” in the U.S. today. Monte Sloan is a senior wolf handler and staff photographer who will offer tips on photographing these beautiful animals. The new viewing window is expected to be complete, as well, so visitors can stop down to see the wolves, enjoy the reception, and view beautiful artwork.
