Shy Wolf Sanctuary to offer hands-on experience for kids at C’mon


NAPLES, Fla. (July 22, 2013) – The Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples will host Shy Wolf Sanctuary Education & Experience Center for “Wolves, Coyotes, Dingoes…and Dogs!?!” on July 27 from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Children and their parents will have the unique opportunity to meet a few wild canids and will also learn the similarities and differences between a wolf, coyote, wolf-dog and a dingo. The learning experience is recommended for children age seven and older and is free with the cost of regular admission.

“Although Shy Wolf Sanctuary spends a great deal of time rehabilitating and taking care of our animals, another aspect of our initiative is to educate the public about these remarkable animals,” stated Nancy Smith, president of Shy Wolf Sanctuary. “We hope that children and their parents will leave C’mon with a new appreciation and understanding about wolves and other canids.”

Founded in 2002 as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charitable organization, the mission of the Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples is “to provide an exciting, inspiring environment where children and their families play, learn and dream together.” C’mon is open six days a week, Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free for members; free to children under one; $10 for adults and children; $10 for seniors.
