AIM House participants and staff participated in a 3 day volunteer immersion at Mission Wolf, a wildlife sanctuary in Southern Colorado this month. Mission Wolf is non-profit, educational wolf sanctuary in the remote Colorado mountains. In addition to the focus on wildlife conservation and preservation, Mission Wolf focuses on sustainability -- the facility operates on solar power, and was built with recycled materials. AIM House has partnered with Mission Wolf for years and is happy and grateful for a facility in the state that is doing such incredible work.
While at Mission Wolf this trip, AIM participants and staff had the opportunity to help build enclosures for the animals. They worked to repair facilities. Of course they also got some time with the wolves. One participant said the most memorable moment of the trip was hearing all of the wolves call out to each other. “I won’t ever forget it!”
In addition to working hard, the AIM crew also enjoyed time camping out and staying warm around the fire. With so many members of our community coming from profound experiences in the wilderness, it was a welcome retreat back to nature.
