Seacrest Wolf Preserve's Full Moon Festival
On August 16th, SWP hosted an exclusive, fundraising event to celebrate its 20 year anniversary. Only 100 tickets were available, and we at Seacrest felt overwhelmed with feelings of love and support when tickets sold out within a couple of weeks. This inspired the Seacrest pack to work our hardest, making sure the event was phenomenal for our guests. Dr. Alex and Holli planned and prepared for weeks leading up to the event. The excitement and love expressed by guests as they started checking in laid the foundation for one of the best events held at Seacrest.
"It was heartwarming to see friends and prior guests, as well as all the new faces pour in through our gates" recalls Dr. Alex. "One of my favorite moments was observing our wolves, who very much know the usual routines and schedule, wait in anticipation and wonder what was going on. They knew something special was happening and as dusk grew nearer, you could see the excitement grow in their eyes and body language. It definitely made me smile."
The event officially began with our Small Animal Adventure, which was immediately followed by a Wolf Tour as the sun set. Although it was still slightly hotter than desired, the wolves were so loving and interactive, and the guests were engaged and full of fantastic questions. The energy of the group was so positive and full of love; you could see it on everyone's faces. And the wolves responded in kind. It truly was one of our best wolf tours this year.
The sense of community and friendship amongst the Festival's guests was infectious. Although we experienced technical difficulties, we only experienced love, support and understanding from all our guests. We first watched "The Rise of Black Wolf", a documentary about a Yellowstone wolf who led an unorthodox lifestyle. This was followed by a group howl under the full moon, and the entire preserve enthusiastically joined in! The night ended with the movie "Druid Peak", which is an amazing film if you have yet to see it.
Additionally, Festival guests participated in a collaborative art project, which was presented to Seacrest co-founder, Cynthia Watkins, as a 20th anniversary card. The final product was so beautiful and full of love. She was brought to tears upon receiving it. We at SWP feel the deepest gratitude and love for everyone who came out to celebrate 20 years of preservation through education and support Seacrest and it's wolves. SWP cannot express enough appreciation for how special our supporters and friends made this event!
