We had such a great time visiting, listening to Steve, and seeing all the animals. He is very informed and passionate about animals and the environment. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Was a bit freaky as to how close you are to the animals. Especially the wolves. They began howling as soon as we got out of the car. Honestly that was a bit intimidating. You should definitely check it out.

This was my first visit... keep in mind that there was quiet a bit of snow on the ground and a little on the cold and windy side so we moved through quickly. I did enjoy the visit. The wolves were pretty cool to watch,...More
