Have you ever wanted to experience the life of a biologist? You may get the opportunity when you join us for our wolf research weekend adventure! Our program starts on a Friday night at the International Wolf Center, where you’ll learn your way around the tools biologists use in the field to locate and study wild wolves. You’ll also get to enjoy a fire-pit snack as we discuss wolf research over s’mores! After a provided breakfast in the morning, you and staff will coordinate on the ground to track down some wolves! Test your new skills with our telemetry equipment and then hop in our bus and begin your search for that elusive radio collar signal! Continue your afternoon with an animal necropsy! After dinner, end your evening with a view of our ambassador wolves while they feed on their dinner, as well as a wolf howling safari! Wrap up on Sunday morning with a Q&A about wolf research and careers, or make-up treks into the field depending on weather.
