Wolf Conservation Center:
Today you can be a wolf expert! Join us on a visit to the Wolf Conservation Center in South Salem, NY where we will learn the history, ecology, and biology of these amazing creatures and develop a new understanding of wolf recovery programs for rare and extinct species including red wolves and Mexican gray wolves.
The Center has played a critical role in preserving and protecting imperiled species through carefully managed breeding and reintroduction. To date the Wolf Conservation Center remains one of the largest holding facilities for rare species and seven wolves from the Center have been given the freedom to resume their rightful place in the wild landscape.
While we would all love to see these lovely, rare creatures, human interaction is limited so they can be released back into their natural landscape.
Meet Ambassador Wolves:
We will however meet the center’s two Ambassador wolves, Alawa and Nikai who have inspired guests to embrace their beauty and importance in our world despite past human misconceptions.
If there’s one thing you can bring back with you after this visit (since it’s not a wolf), it’s that the world needs wolves!
Ward Pound Ridge Reservation:
Let’s stay out in nature at the nearby Ward Pound Ridge Reservation where we can enjoy an included picnic lunch and have time to wander the trails and explore the Trailside Museum that is home of the Delaware Indian Research Center.
Go butterflying in the meadow, see regional art in the Gallery at the Park, or go on a search for Leatherman’s Cave!
