Land Between Lakes’ red wolf habitat to receive lift
GOLDEN POND, Ky. (AP) – Land Between The Lakes’ Woodlands Nature Station will receive help from a conservation group to improve the station’s red wolf habitat enclosure.
The nonprofit Red Wolf Coalition will help enhance the environment for the station’s breeding pair of endangered red wolves.
Plans include planting native trees to provide shade for the wolves and visitors and adding top soil, mulch and water bars to support native grasses and wildflowers. The plan is to create an enclosure that resembles Kentucky woodlands.
Land Between The Lakes said in a news release the work will be done by volunteers from the University of Connecticut as part of their alternative spring break program.
Land Between The Lakes served as part of the original range for red wolves.
Lands Between The Lakes National Recreation Area manages more than 170,000 acres in western Kentucky and Tennessee.
