Public Wolf Howl Program Coming Up At Crex Meadows
Have you ever heard a timber wolf howl in the wild? Crex Meadows Wildlife Area offers you the opportunity to hear the harmonious howls of the “Crex Pack” while learning how to howl like one!
Conduct a wolf howling survey with our local wildlife biologist and conservation educator Labor Day weekend. Begin at Crex Meadows Visitor Center with a brief slideshow overview of wolf ecology and our changing perceptions of this elusive animal. Then we will carpool to one or more special locations in Crex Meadows WA where wild wolves may answer the imitations given by staff. There, we will attempt to get the wolves to howl. Wolves usually answer, but like all wild animals, they are unpredictable and may not respond.
This popular evening program is a fun and educational opportunity to listen to the unique calls of the wolf!
This program is offered on Friday, August 30th, 2013. Reservations are required and easily made by calling 715-463-2739 or via email Space is limited to 40 participants.
The program starts at 7:30 p.m. and lasts about 2 ½ hours. The program is not recommend for children younger than 4. Bring insect repellent. Dress for the weather; howling will occur except with lightning or heavy rain. Do not bring pets.
