Time with the wolves

Great for five year olds and older. I left with an appreciation and respect for the wolves, also a sadness for their limited numbers. Wonderful way to learn.

Wolf Hollow is an amazing conservation place in Ipswich. There is a very informative presentation and time to check out all the wolf pens. The shows can sell out, so arrive early, or be prepared to get tickets for the next show. The presenters can answer any questions.

The sanctuary employees and especially owner were very informed and gave a good presentation. Good for kids and lots of reasons to reconsider how to help these beautiful endangered animals. It was crowded and sold out quick but nevertheless nice.

Wolf Hollow is a couple of miles from my home. I pass it all the time on my way to Essex, and wonder what's going on there. So this past Sunday, I made plans to visit with the family. So happy I did. Forget Disney, this is real life. It was such a nice education about wolves and how the... More

Absolutely Inspiring! A cold Sunday winter afternoon that brought heartfelt respect for Wolf’s and their caregivers. The cost was nominal. In my opinion, I would have paid more and they should consider adding a few dollars to the small fee they charge. The presenter of the program was articulate and engaging with all age groups visiting that day. He shared... More

We went on a sunny cold day. The speaker really knew so much about the wolves. He was interesting and kept giving the animals a bit to eat. I enjoyed the lecture what parts I got to hear. I had an active 3 year old to watch. This program would be great for an older kid and adults. I will... More

My husband and I recently visited Wolf Hollow on a recommendation from a friend. The educational lecture was about an hour and fifteen minutes. It was entertaining while very educational. The people who operate this facility are very passionate about preserving wolves. During the talk you are looking at the wolves while the speaker is presenting. This is a non... More

This wolf sanctuary provides the unique opportunity to see wolves up close and interacting with the staff and volunteers. The educational talk is fun and helps dispel the myths and prejudices surrounding these gorgeous animals. The most recent session I attended with friends from out of state brought back fond memories of wolves past; Weeble, Denali, and other members of... More

My daughter loves wolves so we decided to check this place out. It was a great experience. The staff was very friendly and knowledgable. The speaker we had was phenomenal! He is a school teacher when he is not working with the wolves. He spoke to the group for an hour. Some speakers are monotone and may not know what... More
