The Adirondack Wildlife Refuge near Wilmington, NY is a great visit if you want to see and learn about wolves. Most days of the week a very knowledgeable person gives a talk from the wolf cage. He talks for about two hours and is very...More

I am so grateful that Lisa told us about this Wildlife Refuge. It is heart-wrenching to see all of the animals who end up here. Everyone has a story to tell. Some will never be able to return to life outside of the refuge, because...More

This relatively unassuming, off the beaten path reserve is worth the trip. The best part is the wolf talk/lecture at 10am - it's extremely informative and interactive. The talk isn't for smaller children as there's just a little interaction with the wolves, but it's fascinating...More

They are remodeling and upgrading everything. New building and cages are nicer. This place rehabilitates animals and releases those that can be. Eagles, hawks, wolves, etc. All it costs is whatever donation you make. Staff is knowledgeable and friendly.

Good for all ages. It is in a very natural setting in the woods and not too large. Maybe Steve will walk in the woods with you and the wolves!!! This is quite a place. Where appropriate clothing and shoes for being in the... More
