I attended the wolf preserve for the first time last year. Absolutely amazing and pleasantly surprised to see the foxes and bobcats as well. Very educational, breathtaking and overall amazing to see. Really hoping to make another trip this year.

The owners' Jim and Becky were extremely passionate and knowledgeable about the wolves, fox and bobcats. It was amazing to learn about the animals and watch the owners interact with the animals. It was better than I had anticipated.
