Kidwings Explores

Join KidWings Explores this year and follow the exciting exploits of host Chris Anderson as he teaches us about barn owls and other top predators. Webisode topics include how owls select their habitat, nesting and hunting habits, and why it’s vital to conserve these and other iconic top predators. Future Kidwings Explores will focus on similar characteristics and information about bears, wolves and mountain lions.

What is a Wolf?

The Wolf Education & Research Center

A howling experience awaits you!

Wolves. That's the first impression you'll get when you drive up the road to our Center. Often times, one of the female Owyhee Pack members will be checking out the commotion from the gravelly road.   Wilderness. Set apart in the heart of the Nez Perce Tribal Wilderness, the Wolf Center boasts a place among the trees and the meadow. Choose from miles of trails to explore and learn about the flora and fauna of the region.   Sanctuary. Disconnect from the devices (except for the camera) and bask in the presence of quiet. The only sounds you'll hear are the birds chirping, the bees buzzing, and an occasional howl to remind you where you are.

What people are saying
Thank you for all your hard work and dedication to saving our wolves. And allowing me to be apart of this journey, having a voice, speaking out. I love being all God's creatures advocate, for they can't speak for themselves.

These are the wolves that started it all for me. I will never forget them they were and still are awesome and forever in my heart.
