(WBNG) -- This week's winner of $2,000 for Southern Tier Tuesdays is the Wolf Mountain Nature Center which inhabits 25 wolves, coyotes, and arctic foxes.
The center began 14 years ago with the purpose of dispelling myths about wolves and helping people to learn to coexist with and advocate for wildlife. They offer educational programs such as guided tours, howl nights, camping, and caretaker-for-a-day. Visitors have the opportunity to get up close to animals they may otherwise never see in the wild.
This non-profit is 100% volunteer-run and will use the grant from Upstate Shredding to improve the habitats for the animals.
