This Friday, August 9 and Saturday, August 10, head to Wolf Park in the evening at 7:30 pm to “howl with the wolves“.  Have you ever visited Wolf Park?  If not, you need to make sure you add this to your “must-visit” list of attractions to tour in the area.  The park offers visitors an opportunity to see gray wolves, bison, coyotes, and red & gray foxes.  Throughout the summer you can have the chance to howl with the wolves on Friday and Saturday nights.  The interaction between humans and the wolves is really fascinating and the park is top of the line.  The volunteers and workers at Wolf Park are passionate about wolf and animal education and they share their knowledge of wolf communication with the public in a positive, easy manner to understand.
