Ready for a magical experience? The Newport 60+ Adventure Van will be headed to the While Wolf Sanctuary on Wednesday, October 21, for a guided tour to meet each wolf and learn about them and their background.
Two of the newest additions to the Sanctuary are Baker and Everett, who arrived in May 2015. Other wolves are Malina, which means sun goddess in Inuit, Nukka, who loves giving kisses, Archidamus, the only Timberwolf; he loves to talk at feeding time, Hope loves hot dogs and gives the softest of kisses, Tamahawk, known as Party Girl as she wakes everyone up in the morning by running around belting out lively howls, Nike, named for the Goddess of Victory, Modoc who is named in honor of the Modoc Tribe in Klamath Falls, OR, Sakarri, which means sweet in Inuit, and Goliath who is very shy.
The White Wolf Sanctuary is a Non-Profit organization and their mission is to rescue and provide mistreated or unwanted Artic Wolves with a permanent home and to educate the public about wolves in the wild and their importance to the environment.
They are located on top of a mountain and the weather does vary. Recommend dressing for cool, possibly wet weather. Please wear long pants and closed toe shoes. Please do not wear cologne or perfume as wolves have more sensitive noses than we do. No photography as the wolves are very sensitive to unfamiliar people holding foreign objects.
Lunch (on you) will be at the Salty Dawg in Waldport.
The cost for this trip is $60.00. We will depart from the 60+ Center in Newport on Wednesday, October 21, at 10:30 am and return around 5:00 pm. For more info, or to reserve your spot, come by our office at 20 SE 2nd Street in Newport, or give us a call at 541-265-9617.
