Wolf Howls

Public Wolf Howls - Howling WolfWolf howling expeditions take place only on Thursdays in August, or in September before Labour Day, when weather and accessible wolves permit. Meet at the Outdoor Theatre for a presentation on wolf ecology and our changing perceptions of this elusive animal; event protocol is provided; and then we travel by car (on rare occasions, we walk) to a place along Highway 60 where wild wolves may answer the imitations given by the Naturalist staff.

2020 Potential Wolf Howl Dates

Public Wolf Howls have been cancelled for 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting restrictions. We are hopeful this event will return in 2021. Watch this webpage for updates.
