These folks care about what they do. Simply put. The animals are respected. The message is of utmost importance. Stop wolf myths and protect and respect. We went on the wolf photography walk. A privilege.

Really enjoyed our visit today; the wolves are beautiful. Mostly they were snoozing in the sun, but Flora was alert & watching us! The staff are friendly & the interpretive talk was both entertaining & very informative. Worth a visit if you are in Golden.
