Shop at Whole Foods on 10-17, ENC Receives 5%!

Whole Foods Market just opened a new store in Newport Beach!  To celebrate they are holding a Community Giving Day on October 17th.  Whole Foods Markets hold Community Giving Days to help support and better communities they are involved in throughout the nation. They will be donating 5% of that day’s net sales to the Environmental Nature Center (ENC). This will go a long way in helping us provide fun and educational programs for adults and children.

ENC Nature Camper article featured in Spring issue of Wolf Haven!

My name is Jared Schafer, I am 10 years old and I live in Southern California.  I learned about Wolf Haven when a speaker came to the Environmental Nature Center in Newport Beach to tell us about wolves and Wolf Haven.  She talked about wolves and the need for Wolf Haven to protect those wolves that can not be let back in the wild.  She told us about specific wolves and how you could adopt one.  I was so excited about it that I adopted a wolf named Caedus,  a young black wolf.  My family was planning a trip to Portland over the summer so we included Wolf Haven in our travel plans so that I could meet Caedus and check out Wolf Haven.  Since…
