Join us for a day of fun at Wolf Park featuring the wolves in their glorious full winter coats. This year, world renowned Wolf Park photographer Monty Sloan will give a presentation on photography and Tom O’Dowd will give a presentation on wolf research on Isle Royale.  Hot drinks will be available indoors so that visitors can warm up in between activities, which will include games and a butchering demonstration.

January is a great time to see the wolves, since they love the cold and tend to be active and howling all day long, unlike those long hot summer afternoons they spend napping.  When the pond is frozen over, the wolves skate and play on the ice.

Winter Wolves is a great time for families to come visit us — there is something for everyone.

Wolf Park is located at 4004 East County Road 800 North in Battle Ground, Indiana, in Tippecanoe County northeast of Lafayette.

Adults $8; kids 6-13 $6; kids under 5 and Members FREE!  Return for Howl Night at 7:30—a “combo ticket” will get you into both sessions for only $14 for adults; $10 for kids 6-13.  For more information call 765-567-2265 or email
