The National Wolfwatcher Coalition has no membership dues and we do not send out mailers asking for money. We don't send "free" labels or any other items you didn't request, then beg for money. We exist because of the hundreds of hours donated by our volunteers, your generous donations, and through the profits raised through the sale of merchandise.
