International Wolf Center

They have wolves that you can watch and the facility is very well done. Lots of great info on wolves.

[Meghan Gingerich, 09/02/2017]

Your chances of spotting a wolf through the glass, or on one of the "wolf cams," is entirely up to the wolves. The facility is less than three miles east of the North American Bear Center down the road.
