This was a perfect Saturday afternoon activity for us before spring sports get started. To start, the kids enjoyed the half mile walk up the gravel road - nice way to stretch the legs. At the end of the road, there are chain link fences where you can see the wolves as you wait for the tour to begin. The whole area is wooded, with the wolf enclosures looking no different than the surrounding forest. Just to the right, the British Columbia wolves with the black coats were stunning to behold! And when Jim began the talk, we all were enthralled. Their love and respect for the wolves comes through, as well as their depth of knowledge. The handful of bobcats and foxes is a nice extra touch as well.
Make sure to record an audio of the wolves howling while you're there. And if you go in February like we did, bundle up! After an hour of standing and listening, the toes start to get cold! Even with that, I'd like to come again in the winter - it's a nice contrast to see the wolves on snow, and there is no understory to block the visuals.
