NM Brujos pitch in at Wolf Sanctuary, head to Santa Fe 10s this Sun! Ref training course this Sat!
Last Saturday, August 27th, members of the New Mexico Brujos and their families pitched in to help clean up the habitat at the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary. The Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary is a wolf and wolfdog sanctuary and visitor center, with a focus on conservation. For more information on the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary check out their website. They have staff for the day to day operations of the park, but it's tough for them to make headway on larger projects without some extra hands, and that's where the NM Brujos come in! The Brujos built and repaired a few fences, did some habitat restoration, and cleanup. Last year members of the wolf sanctuary staff ended up attending the drag show, so there's some mutual support here. Volunteerism and giving back to the community is a cornerstone of New Mexico Brujos Rugby Community, now and always!
