Day Visits to Mission: Wolf

Wolves with kidsHours: Open 9 am - 6 pm, every day of the year.

Cost: Free! We ask for donations or items from our wish-list. Please be fair, generous, and honest with how much you can give.

Meet A Wolf: We cannot guarantee a wolf visit, but we try to take every visitor in to meet our ambassador wolves. The wolves are lethargic after our big feeds, becoming more social as they digest some of their huge meal. The best days to meet a wolf are Wednesdays and Saturdays. The worst days are Mondays and Thursdays, when they're asleep and digesting.

Feed A Wolf: Our famous big feed is every Wednesday and Saturday between 1 and 3 pm. We visit the wolves before feeding, so don't be late! We recommend you arrive around 11 to get a tour before feeding.

Daily Feed: If you arrive at 8 am, we do a small feeding each morning to get suppliments and medications to the animals. This is currently a staff only feeding, as we are working with all of our animals training for fire evacuation. You are welcome to watch us feed the ambassadors. Official tours begin around 9am.

Children: All children are welcome to Mission:Wolf, however we do recommend an age limit of 6 years old for children around the wolves. Our wolves see children as puppies and want to play. Because younger children are more likely to rile up our wolves, for safety purposes, children may be limited to certain areas on the tour.

Volunteer: We always have projects to do. Whatever skills you have, we can find a way to put them to work. We always have need of people to do metalworking, gardening, chainsaw work, and office work. Read more about volunteering here.

Camping: We have a tent campsite available free of charge. Please read about camping overnight here before planning your camping visit.
