Thoroughly interesting and worth the trip. Where else can you actually see these shy, intelligent animals and learn about their behavior? My family and I support the efforts to help them return to the wild and to their proper place in the ecosystem. The staff members at the Wolf Center are a great asset - engaging and very knowledgeable.

It's definitely off the beaten path, so be prepared for a little rugged climb with your vehicle. They are doing a great job there. I wish the group was not so large, it would have been easier to hear the volunteers that work so hard there!

It's in a beautiful location, although it might be unpleasantly warm in high summer. The wolf center volunteers were charming and the presentation very engaging and educational.

From Our Editors

"The haunting melody of a howling wolf pack is heard in only a handful of states, as wolves have been exterminated from a vast majority of their original range," explains the California Wolf Center's website. Though these howling cries are harder to find than they once were, one place to witness their grandeur is at the California Wolf Center.

The non-profit 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 two subspecies of wolves: the Rocky Mountain gray wolf and the endangered Mexican gray wolf. 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 enclosures that can help retain their natural behavior, as some of them will eventually be released back into the wild.
