Wolf Park Howl Night

Wolf Park in Battle Ground from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM

Experience the Wolf’s Trademark Behavior: The Howl!

Visit Wolf Park in the evening and see our animals in a whole new light. As the night falls and the air cools, the wolves grow lively. Guests will learn how wolves communicate, both through their “trademark” behavior – the howl, and through body language. Wolf Park staff members will join the wolves midway through the evening to demonstrate how our animal curators work with our wolves through positive reinforcement training and reading body language. Guests will be encouraged to howl along as the wolves serenade the park.

7:00 – 7:30 Walking Path Open

7:30 – 8:30 Howl Program

Cameras are welcome, but no flash photography, please, as it can startle or upset the wolves. Generally, the wolves come right up to the fence and can be seen clearly.
