Places to See Wolves
The International Wolf Center and Wolf Park are two of the best captive wolf facilities. The International Wolf Center is a beautiful facility near the town of Ely, MN. It is made up of a well-laid out building dedicated to education and a 1.3 acre enclosure for its ambassador wolves. The Center educates the public about wolves through its magazine, The International Wolf, courses, outdoor experiences, a huge museum display, videos, talks, invited international wolf biologists, and the ambassador wolves. The International Wolf Center is the place to go for the very best in factual wolf information.
A description of Wolf Park cannot be complete without mentioning Howl Nights and the Wolf-Bison Demonstration. On Howl Nights, the public is invited to come and sit in the bleachers and howl with the wolves. The Wolf-Bison Demonstration is also open to the public and illustrates how wolves and prey interact.
If you want to see a lot of wolves and perhaps even interact with them personally, Wolf Park is the place to go. It is dedicated to Wolf Education Plus.
Wild wolves are also frequently observed in northeastern Minnesota. That's because Minnesota, especially the northeastern portion, has a large wolf population (estimated at about 2600+ animals). We have seen wolves there walking along State Road 169 and U.S. 53. Our closest encounter with a wild wolf was near 6am one August morning after just getting out of our car near a marsh. The wolf was about 10 feet away. It looked at us, yawned and slowly walked away.
