Exhibit: Wolves and Wild Lands in the 21st Century
"Through real wolf displays and photography by Jim Brandenburg, this provocative exhibit examines conservation issues facing wolves from the Arctic to southeastern United States. Developed by the International Wolf Center in Ely, Minnesota, the exhibit tackles the questions: What can people do to make living with wolves easier? What are the financial and environmental costs of wolf predation on livestock? And will coyotes ultimately win out over wolves in the competition for food and space?

I am still a little glazed over and euphoric over the reality that I will be living in a space 2 1/2 the size of my current quarters-- Large blank walls, wood floors, pets allowed, *swoon*, etc.
I wanted to post this second picture from the first visit where I was able to get in there and take it all in.

As a child, I watched this program religiously. I am not ashamed.

The condition of this made me very sad.
(This is of course, in the 20s, but for accuracy sake, I can say that the postcard paper is AZO, 2-up, 2-down.) (1918-1930)
