Lakota Wolf Preserve
The date for the Lakota Wolf Preserve trip has been changed once again because they
can’t accommodate us on November 3. I called about November 18 but haven’t heard back yet. Note that because of DST,
that tour will begin at 3:00, so tail lights will be at 1:15 at Wal-Mart. The entrance fee is $15 and credit cards are not accepted.
The preserve is closed on Mondays so I may not hear back from them before Jerry and I
leave for Europe. Bill, do you want to call them if I don’t hear from them tomorrow? Otherwise we won’t know anything
till I return (October 30). The phone number is 1-877-733-9653 and the website is http://www.lakotawolf.com/Wolf_Watch.htm.
New Date November
We're going to see the wolves on Saturday November 17 (rain date Sunday November 18). Taillights at 1:15 from the Wal-Mart on US 22 Bridgewater.
The watch begins at 3:00 pm. We must arrive at 2:30. I'll call for a group reservation, so I'll need to know how many are going. The tour is about 1.5 hours. On the way home, those who are interested can join us for dinner at the Buckwood Bistro, where we ate after the last wolf cruise. (84 Route 46 East, Delaware, NJ)
Hope you can join us.

Watch and listen to packs of Tundra, Timber, and Arctic wolves. Bobcats and foxes also reside at the reserve. Upon arrival at the Preserve you will be invited to the observation area, in the center of four packs of wolves. During our informal talks with the people who raised and care for the wolves you will learn about the social structure of wolf packs, their eating habits, their interaction with man and many other interesting facts. We will try to educate you on the true behavior of the wolf and will be glad to answer any questions you may have. While in the observation area you will be able to watch the wolves play, interact with each other and maybe even hear them howl.
The Wolf Watch program lasts for 1.5 hours:
You must arrive at 2:30 to register and park your vehicle. Please do not arrive before 2:15 pm or you will be denied entrance by Camp Taylor. The Wolf Watch starts at 3:00.
