Wonderful educational experience to walk with 2 Wolves. The bond between the Wolves, their personalities and the ongoing education needed to dispel so many myths about Wolves in the wild were just a few of the take-aways for us. Best experience just to be around these amazing animals! Thanks to Casey and Shelly for a one-of-a-kind experience!

Really took great care with us. I took a photographers walk and it was so amazing! I think that it is not that worth it if you treat it like a zoo... it is not a zoo. Even though it costs a bit, the walk with the wolves is worth it. Really great and once in a lifetimes experience! Also,... More

Be prepared to see wolves in small quarters who are pacing. The information provided was valuable and the small quarters were almost acceptable because these wolves were born in captivity. They appear to be well-treated. I was there when they were taken out of their pens on leashes to go for a run in the mountains so I was able... More

We actually went in July 2014 - the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. You are able to see the wolves and learn a lot about the animals. They have a gift shop and we bought shirts they had made. They are our favourite shirts! So soft and they don't shrink - nice to help out the centre while we shop!

Did the photo session and hike with owners, Casey & Shelly. Very nice dedicated people who opened the centre 14 years ago. After driving about 10 miles from centre, they let the 2 Wolves out and we walked a logging road for about 1 hour. The Wolves are very friendly and excited to be running free eating berries.

Very informative. Great to see people working hard to care for animals, and their environment! Wolves looked healthy and content.

Total 8 wolves - 2 in a pen not visible to public. It's a wooded acreage with 4 small pens. Some good info in lecture. Very little parking - rvs/trailers must park on road. $21 entrance fee for an adult & teenager. Gift shop items very expensive. Spent 45 minutes including shopping - just not worth it.

The guide we had just rattled off as much information as possible in a fast mono-toned voice as if he was reading it from a script. He would not allow the kids or adults to ask questions along the way, as this seemed to phase him and loose his 'place'. I had to stop him and ask him to slow... More
