Residents of Grand Junction this week will have a chance to see real live Arctic wolves.

The John McConnell Math and Science Center in Grand Junction are teaming up with Rocky Mountain PBS for the first of four events in a series on environmental science.

This one is called "Critters, Carnivores, and Creepy-Crawlie"s and will give guests a chance to get up close with insects, wolves,  and a variety of other critters on Thursday, March 10.

Highlighting the fun-filled but educational evening will be a never-before-seen guest presentation featuring live Arctic wolves, native to Canada. The presentation will run from 6:00PM-6:30 PM, and then there will be hands-on activities, contests,  and live demonstrations until 8:00 PM.

Bambi Harmon, Operations Manager for the Math and Science Center, emphasizes this event is geared toward families, and will appeal to adults as well as children. The cost is just $15 per family or $10 per family for members of the Math and Science Center or members of Rocky Mountain PBS.

The John McConnell Math and Science Center is located at 2660 Unaweep Avenue in Grand Junction.
