Very knowledgable volunteers and staff. Gave us an interesting presentation about wolves, their projects at the center, and answered all the group's questions. It was a plus that we got to see the wolves from a close distance, though they're very shy.

I loved this tour! It was very informative and the guides were nice. They did their best to answer everybodys questions as thoroughly as possible. I found out that they have a volunteer program as well so I will definitely be back!

Amazing! So educational and informational and the wolves are so majestic. I highly recommend this activity for all ages although I do wish the groups were a little smaller. Perhaps the wolves would be less intimidated by smaller groups and the visitors would be able to hear Caleb, the caretaker, explain their behaviors more clearly and also be able to see the animals better.

Very knowledgeable staff and fun time spent with some amazing wolves. Peaceful setting! I bought a membership so looking forward to going back. Short drive to Julian afterwards to enjoy some pie too!

This place is wonderful. The staff is so passionate about helping wolves, and they are really good at explaining their plan and how they're executing their mission. I especially like that they're not conservationists who think their mission is THE only mission; they understand that ranchers rely on their livestock as livelihood, and they're working with ranchers to educate and pay for their programs. Seeing the few wolves you can is a treat, as they are just beautiful. I've been here twice, the 2nd time as a Christmas present to my family. It's just a wonderful place.

An adventure to get there. Well worth it. Very dedicated and knowledgeable people. All questions gladly answered. Beautiful wolves that were curious and pretty used to people. Made for great photo opportunities. One enclosure had 2 wolves that were very visible and active. Check the center's "wish list". I found things to bring from Home Depot. Great experience.

From Our Editors

California Wolf Center was founded in 1977 to educate the public about wildlife and ecology, specifically the history and behavior of the gray wolf. Located 50 miles east of San Diego, it houses 19 wolves—five Alaskan gray wolves and 14 of the approximately 358 Mexican gray wolves that exist worldwide. The wolves act as ambassadors for the wild, taking part in educational programs for the public. The center also participates in the Mexican Wolf Species Survival Plan, which aims to help the endangered species recover in the wild. At the facility, wolves live in off-exhibit enclosures that can help retain their natural behavior since some of them will eventually be released back into the wild.
