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.
This monument was erected to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the 1944 Warsaw uprising and to the memory of the young scouts and guides, known as the GRAY RANKS who lost their lives in the Nazi concentration camps
