It's a bit off the highway, with limited parking. The guided part of the visit is a very set recital of information (much of which is also on the very interesting information boards). There was no chance to ask questions during the talk, we were...More

My boyfriend and I saw this place after we came from the bison ranch just around the corner. We had a spare hour and thought why not! We joined the talk (I think she was the owner) that was very educational, finding out how important...More

This is a privately run education centre, and I totally support the mission, the idea, and the work that is being done on behalf of the wolf species. The 'presentation' focused on the legal (always open) season on Wolves in BC and Alberta and the...More
