Located less than an hour from Colorado Springs in a scenic mountain setting awaits a unique and educational wildlife experience. The Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center is home to wolves, coyotes and fox that each live and thrive in large wooded enclosures that provide privacy, sanctuary and stimulation for these amazing and beautiful animals.
Experience the thrill of the intense gaze of these beautiful creatures. Admire their poise and grace. Delight in the playful antics of the youngsters in the pack. Learn the heartwarming story of Sabin, and the romantic story of "The Lovers", Chinook and Nikita, for whom it was love at first sight.
Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center visitors can take an hour tour to meet all of the resident animals, learn their histories and gain a better understanding of how they and their habitat are being threatened and what people can do to help. Each tour culminates with a group "wolf howl." Your tour guide starts the howl, you join in, and, with luck, all the wolves soon begin to howl, creating a magical and serene experience for everyone.

Making reservations for all tours at the Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center is highly recommended. Full-moon tours are also available as well as special events and volunteer opportunities. For an additional fee, you can have an "up-close and personal" interactional wolf experience with your photo taken with several of the animals. Slurpy wolf kisses are an added bonus! Special holiday events take place throughout the year, so check the website often and sign up to receive our electronic newsletter. Ambassador wolves from the Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center are also available to make special educational appearances at schools or other organizations.
