Wolf Moon Tours: Gray Wolf Behavioral Research
The full moon in January is known as the Wolf Moon, as it is the time of year when wolves tend to be most active. That means there’s no better time to visit our wolves! We will be hosting our first specialty tour of 2024 during the Wolf Moon, January 26 (3:40-5:00 p.m.), slightly later than our normal afternoon tours, so you can experience the magical rise of the full moon over Julian while sharing special enrichment with our resident wolves in their beautiful, warm winter coats. A perfect winter memory for the whole family! We expect these tours to sell out, so book your spots early at: https://bit.ly/wolfmoon2024
