My 12 year old granddaughter and I visited. The guide (I think his name was Ken) was very knowledgeable and his passion for the wolves and the environment was impressive. The experience is well described on the web site: the walk is a little more than a mile, outside, and tour reservations are required. The wolves and other canines are... More

We took our Girl Scout Junior troop here for a tour. They loved it. The tour guide was extremely helpful and had a lot of knowledge of the wolves. Well worth the visit!

My Cub Scout Pack visits the Endangered Wolf Center every other year. (On the off year we go to the World Bird Sanctuary nearby.) This year we did the Paws on the Path presentation which started with a classroom session discussing the animals at the Center and what it means to be 'endangered.' We then visited various enclosures to view... More

We had an awesome tour with Jeremy. It was very educational and the animals were beautiful. This place does great things to help reserve these animals. This is a great place to go and experience no matter what age you are.

The first part of this tour is informational, hosted in the gift shop area, and includes a presentation by a guide, as well as the 'passing of the pelts'. While I enjoyed it immensely, since he debunked many myths about wolves, this part is pretty extensive (45 mins - 1hr) and I don't recommend for kids or fidget-y teens. Our... More

Thank you so much for visiting our center! It sounds like you came during the best and most underrated time of the year-- breeding season! The animals get very active and noisy around this time and we're happy you could experience it. Our classroom can be extensive-- we are trying to consistently keep them at 30 minutes for the enjoyment... More

Loved it!! Our tour guide was knowledgeable, and it's great to go when the leaves are off the trees, because it gives really good visibility of the animals! We'll definitely be back!

Lisa was our Private Tour guide and she was great! We were able to hear the wolves howl towards the end of our tour and Painted Dogs trying to howl. It was the perfect birthday present for my daughter who's in love with wolves!
