Do you or your children have a love for learning about wolves and other wildlife? If so, then Wolf Park is the perfect place to visit during their open season between May 1st and November 30th during the hours from 1:00 P.M. to 5:00 P.M. every day with the exception of Mondays when they are not open to the public.
Experience the wolves at night by attending Wolf Park’s weekly Howl Nights on Fridays and Saturdays throughout the season! Gates open at 7:15 P.M. Howl Nights provide a demonstration and lecture along with the opportunity to howl with the wolves!
My family recently had the great pleasure of experiencing Wolf Park. My seven year old son loved every bit of our afternoon at this not-for-profit organization dedicated to behavioral research, education and conservation. This facility also features foxes, coyotes and bison!
Prior to my family taking the guided tour, we enjoyed a demonstration and lecture about their wolves and wolf behavior which took about an hour. We were able to observe interactions between the wolves and the volunteers during this session.
Shortly before our tour, we also witnessed a sponsor visit, which is part of Wolf Park’s Adopt a Wolf Program. This program provides supporters a hands on experience with the wolves. This is Wolf Park’s primary financial support.
Wolf Park offers guided walking tours, including group and school tours. These tours take approximately an hour along a flat gravel path. A Wolf Park volunteer can drive individuals with mobility issues in the park’s golf cart during these tours. This amenity is free to anyone that needs the added assistance. Wear comfortable shoes and clothing and prepare for the weather. Tours are included in the price of admission. Admission for children five years and younger are free. Admission for children ages six to thirteen years of age is $6 per child. Admission for anyone fourteen years and older is $8 per person. Check out the Calendar of Events to plan your family’s visit to Wolf Park.
