Lions Provide Cat Tree
at Wildlife West Nature Park
Lions Clubs around the world have been changing lives for 100 years through humanitarian service. Their Centennial Celebration this year offers Club members opportunities to work together to strengthen their communities through service. In celebration, the Lions Club of Edgewood donated $1,074 for youth to build a Cat Tree for the cougars at Wildlife West Nature Park. The public is invited to the ceremony on Saturday, May 13 at 1 p.m. at Wildlife West in Edgewood.
Youth workers completed the Cat Tree in a habitat that is adjacent to the cougars which will be opened to allow them more space to roam. The Cat Tree will provide enrichment for the 2 young cougars who came to the Park last spring. They will be able to climb, explore and nap on the structure.
This year marks Wildlife West’s 25th Anniversary. A year-long celebration will begin with this special ceremony and will be celebrated during Wildlife West’s festivals and events throughout the year. Wildlife West’s zoo is also home to 20 species of native New Mexico wildlife all with their own unique stories about how they came to the Park including black bear, bobcat, elk, Crested Caracaras, raptors and more. Admission to the Wildlife West Zoo is $9 for adults, $7 for seniors and $5 for students. Children 4 years and younger are free.
Wildlife West is located at 87 North Frontage Road in Edgewood just 25 minutes east of Albuquerque, off Interstate 40 and legendary Route 66 in Edgewood. For more information visit www.wildlifewest.org or call 505-281-7655, toll free 877-981-WILD (9453).
