Very interesting to see and learn about wolves, foxes, and bobcats. Despite the heat they were easy to see and get good pictures. They each have their own story and place in the pack. The large natural surroundings made the animals relaxed and comfortable. The knowledge given during the tour was excellent.

Four different packs of wild wolves. Narrative very informative. Bobcats and foxes also on exhibit. When you hear the wolves start howling in unison, its an extraordinary feeling.

A pack of wolves in a natural environment. Although fenced in, they act very naturally while you watch.

I had been waiting for over a year for the opportunity to make this trip, and it was more than worth the wait. The preserve itself is lovely, and Jim and Becky have dedicated their lives to caring for these beautiful creatures (wolves, bobcats and foxes) in a natural, nurturing sanctuary environment. We learned so much about each of the... More

The owners are fantastic people , they habe dedicated their lives to these creatures . The bus ride is bumpy , but brings everyone together with laughter. The money for admission is well spent , it is all used to help this small preserve.

So, this was a great experience. The information provided is excellent and you can tell these people love the animals. Bit of a wait if you take the first ride out so maybe look around the gift shop at the campground the preserve is in. It can be a bit boring waiting for them to get everyone up there on... More
