COME SEE WOLVES

Wolves

That's the first impression you'll get when you drive up the road to our Center. Often times, one of the email 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 a mile of various 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.
Hours of Operation
Self guided tours of Wolf Camp between 9AM and 5PM Daily, Memorial to Labor Day weekends.
