Wildlife artist Brain Kadrmas, right, and Brian Henes of Dakota Taxidermy in Bismarck, North Dakota, build a new wolf exhibit at the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center on Tuesday, Jan. 10, 2017. The exhibit includes the stuffed pelt of the local black wolf known as Romeo that was illegally shot in 2009. The U.S. Forest Service will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony during the intermission between repeat lectures by Alaskan writer and photographer Nick Jans on Friday. Jans helped raise more than $40,000 to construct the new exhibit that includes two interpretive panels, a bronze cast of the wolf's paw print, and his recorded howls. "The completion of this exhibit has been a long time coming," Jans said. "Hard to believe it's been more than seven years, but the important thing is that we're here. We did all we could to make this exhibit the best it could be, and it will be a lasting part of Juneau's history."
