School/Group Education Programs

Eleanor Skull 2

Learn about North America's wildest residents - wolves - during an education session with a WCC wolf expert. Attendees will be exposed to the history, ecology, and biology of wolves, and will learn about the current challenges facing wolf recovery across the United States. An emphasis will be placed on endangered species recovery programs for critically endangered red wolves and Mexican gray wolves. This program is suitable for individuals of all ages and can be tailored to meet specific education requirements.

Each program is roughly an hour and a half in length and will allow visitors to learn more about wolf behavior, ecology, and history, while also viewing the WCC's ambassador wolves. Programs contain indoor and outdoor portions so please dress accordingly.

The program price* is $14 for adults and $11 for children under 12; a flat rate of $200 is applied to groups of fewer than 15 individuals. Contact visit@nywolf.org to reserve a group visit to the WCC. Programs can be scheduled Tuesday - Friday, pending availability. We can accommodate a limited number of individuals per program due to COVID-19 restrictions.

We cannot guarantee the option to schedule a private group visit on Saturday or Sunday. If a program is scheduled during "peak hours" (11 am - 3 pm) a minimum fee of $500 is applied. "Off-peak" programs (before 9 am or after 4 pm) require a minimum fee of $200. Please contact visit@nywolf.org for more information.
