Free admission for first responders

The Endangered Wolf Center would like to say “Thank You” to the brave police officers, firefighters and other first responders who serve and protect us daily.

We’d like to welcome you, your family and friends to our Center. We are proud to offer first responders free admission to our PredaTours and evening Wolf Howls.

The Endangered Wolf Center’s mission is to preserve and protect Mexican wolves, red wolves and other wild canid species, with purpose and passion, through carefully managed breeding, reintroduction and inspiring education programs. The Center is located in Eureka, Mo., along Interstate 44 just west of St. Louis.

On a PredaTour, visitors have the opportunity to see all five species of endangered canids that live at the Center: Mexican wolves, red wolves, maned wolves, African painted dogs and swift foxes. PredaTours are offered on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Campfire Wolf Howls are held on many Fridays and Saturdays in the fall and winter. They offer an entirely different but equally rewarding experience for the whole family. Guests hear wolf-related stories around a roaring campfire and learn about the non-profit Center’s important mission and animals. After a half-mile stroll, guests have the opportunity to hear real wolves howl. Then visitors are offered a chance to show off their own howling skills. After that, they return to the classroom and gift shop for hot chocolate and cookies.

If you like to accept our invitation for your free visit, please call 636-938-5900 for a reservation and remember to bring evidence of your employment as a first responder, whether that’s a badge, an ID or some other verification.

The charge on PredaTours for additional family members and friends is just $14 per adult and $12 per child (ages 4 to 14.) The charge on Campfire Wolf Howls for additional family members and friends is just $15 per adult and $12 per child (ages 5 to 14.)

Again, please know that we very much appreciate all that first responders do for our communities and citizens.
