Fall Day with Wolves

October 3, 2020

Join Wolf Park for a unique learning experience taught by our animal care staff and animal ambassadors. This one-day seminar includes substantial time with our socialized wolves and foxes, presentations on the history of wolf park and canid behavior, and opportunities to ask our staff questions throughout the day.

Through presentations, observations, and direct interactions, you will learn how wolves and foxes use behavior to communicate. Learning how to read and interpret canid behavior is an experience that will benefit any dog lover, as many behaviors transfer across canid species. You will also learn how Wolf Park socializes its wolves and foxes and why this facilitates higher husbandry standards.  

Be sure to bring your camera and open ears for this exclusive day with Wolf Park’s ambassadors.


Topics Covered

  • History of Wolf Park.
  • How to interpret wolf and fox body language and expressions.
  • Husbandry practices of wolves, foxes, and other canids in human care.
