We moved out of state and had to say goodbye to my son's favorite place on earth. The wonderful people that run the California Wolf Center are very knowledgeable and kind and always make visiting a terrific experience. Over the years, we visited many times, going to Julian for the weekend and taking several tours each weekend. Each tour has an educational component where you learn more about these gentle and misunderstood animals and their importance to the ecosystem. You then visit 2 habitats, 1 with the Mexican gray wolf ambassadors and 1 with the Rocky Mountain gray wolf (North American/Timber wolf) ambassadors. Most of the wolves stay in a remote habitat so they can be kept as wild as possible for re-introduction into a natural habitat. Julian is a wonderful town with friendly people and lots of history. Stay at the Julian Lodge to experience it to the fullest. Besides a small gift shop at the wolf center itself, there's a big building next door to the Julian Lodge that has an education center and big, wonderful gift shop with something for everyone. The instructions on the website are very accurate regarding arrival and visiting. This is a terrific weekend getaway that you can enjoy over and over again! We'll miss it so much! Thanks for the memories!
Bit expensive on the surface, but we'll worth it once you understand the great conservation work they do. We we very fortunate to be able to just turn up, but you normally have to book. The best part of the whole thing was we hung out chatting to the staff till dusk, and got to hear the wolves howling! That was the Staffs suggestion so very accomadating , seeing as they probably other things to do rather than just talking with me and my son. We are going again today, can't wait.
I have a friend who is an animal lover and the wolf is her favorite. I found the Wolf Sanctuary online and thought it would be an interesting and different kind of experience for her birthday. She absolutely loved it! We all did! Katie was our guide, and she was awesome! Very informative and happy to share her experience and knowledge! Javier was our Gator greeter 😊. He met us in the Gator 🛺 and escorted us up to the handicap parking. Then he cashed us out at the end of our tour in the gift shop. He was great! We loved the education and the peek in at the wolves. We will go back!
This is a place responsible for the care of wolves that may be introduced to the wild. They also have wolves that will spend their lives here. Very educational.
We enjoyed our behavioral enrichment tour though I can’t say it was super interesting. I liked the tour guide’s narration and knowledge. I certainly learned a lot but I was hoping for some more wolf action. I guess maybe that’s my fault for having different expectations than what this was. Interesting but I wouldn’t come back.
