News alert – it’s Thanksgiving time special celebrations at Wolf Park! This Saturday, November 28 make a trip to Wolf Park to participate in the Turkey Toss! As part of Wolf Park’s environmental enrichment program, designed to make their wolves’ lives in captivity the best they can possibly be, they celebrate each season by distributing seasonally-themed munchies to their four-footed friends. Thanksgiving is no exception as we give thanks that we have wolves in the United States and the wolves at Wolf Park for being an educational ambassador for their wild counter parts.  Each animal receives their very own turkey and the guests at Wolf Park get to help!  Special helpers are chosen to throw a thanksgiving treat, turkeys to the wolves, small turkeys to the coyotes and Cornish game hens to the foxes!
