Did you know that the Juneau Nordic Ski Club is teaming up with the Orpheus Project this winter as we remember and honor Juneau’s favorite wolf, Romeo? Join us this February for The Wolf Who Came to Juneau—a diverse series of events for the whole community centering around Juneau’s friendly black wolf, inspired by our love of Romeo.

To bring our love and appreciation of Romeo to you, we need a little help. Together with Juneau Nordic Ski Club, we are raising funds to help bring our ideas to life. Please consider donating to Orpheus Project and Juneau Nordic Ski Club. Funds raised will be dedicated to producing the following Orpheus Project creative works, a local ski race, and help the JNSC with the development of new trails.

  • February 3: Sneak preview of photography featuring Romeo—framed prints auctioned by Collette Costa
