Emerson sponsored the event for the second year in a row.

Wolf Fest 2015 featured more exhibitors and vendors than ever before, including many of the fan favorites. David Jackson and his Conservation Ambassadors returned, as well as Jonathan Offi and his high-flying agility dogs. Both thrilled the crowd. Native American flute player kicked off the performances.

Guests visited and photographed the Mexican wolves, red wolves, maned wolves, swift foxes and African painted dogs that live at the Endangered Wolf Center. Our expert Animal Care staff and trained naturalists were at the animal enclosures to talk about these endangered species and answer questions.

Other exhibitors and activities included:

The Butterfly House

Kids Out and About
