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, an an occasional howl to remind you where you are.
