New Mexico’s Wildlife West Nature Park, Edgewood’s wildlife preserve holds its Wildlife Festival on Saturday, June 15, 2013.
Wildlife West’s zoo is the home of Koshari, a 500 pound black bear. In addition to Koshari, the festival offers the opportunity for the community to learn about 24 other species of wildlife that are native to New Mexico, providing tours that are scheduled to start each hour.
The refuge has also created a place where people can see Mexican Wolves in their natural habitat. Albuquerque filmmaker and conservationist, Elke Duerr is expected to be a guest presenter, speaking about Mexican wolves in the wild.
