Wolf Howls will resume in August of 2020
Wolf 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, then travel by car (or sometimes on foot) to a place along Highway 60 where wild wolves may answer the imitations given by the Naturalist staff.
