Promoting wolf conservation since 1999

Did You Know?

The parent wolves in a pack are often referred to as the "alpha pair," consisting of an alpha male and alpha female. While "alpha" is still widely used, most scientists prefer to identify the parents of the pack as the breeding pair or simply as the pack parents.

Guidelines and Rules

  • The Wolf Conservation Center (WCC) is a smoke-free facility. 
  • Visitors age 16 and under must be accompanied by a chaperone. Sleeping with Wolves registrants under age 18 must be accompanied by a chaperone.
  • Touching or feeding the wolves is prohibited. 
  • Deposit trash in designated receptacles.
  • Shirts and shoes are required at all times.
  • We reserve the right to escort from WCC grounds any individuals or groups who are acting in ways deemed harmful to our animals, or that impinge upon the enjoyment of the park by other guests.
  • Weapons of any kind are not allowed at the WCC. 


Service Animals

In most settings, the presence of a service animal will not result in a fundamental alteration. However, there are some exceptions. At the Wolf Conservation Center, service animals are restricted from the wolf exhibit areas. Wolves are the natural competitors of dogs, and the presence of a dog would be disruptive, causing the exhibit wolves to become agitated and possibly behave aggressively toward one another.

The Wolf Conservation Center does permit trained service animals to accompany their owners during the indoor educational portion of programs in the WCC classroom cabin.

(Pets and service dogs in training are not permitted on WCC grounds.)
