We visited the Haliburton Forest recently. It's an outstandingly well presented experience from the Wolf habitat and its fine exhibit to the Canopy Tour with skilled naturalists/ arborists. The staff are excellent, very welcoming and engaging. Thank you Cameron, Kim and Leo.

My grandchildren and I visited the “Forest” to see the wolves, Hershey the moose and the pigs. We loved it. And we enjoyed having lunch in the Cookhouse.

This place is a little gem. We were lucky enough to see all 9 wolves of the pack from the viewing area. The guide was very helpful in explaining the behaviors we were witnessing. We really enjoyed watching them interact. Glad we stopped by.More
