Spring Private Tour

Private TourSpring Private Tours are available every day except for Tuesdays. Reservations are required. Please call (636) 938-5900 or book online to arrange a Spring Private Tour (A small processing fee will be added for online booking, or you may call to book directly).

All three options of Spring Private Tours include a guided hour-and-a-half walking tour. The tour route is variable, as Spring is puppy season and tour groups will be taken to areas of the Endangered Wolf Center that will allow all canid mothers to give birth to (and raise) their puppies.

Due to this tour flexibility, tour participants may get a chance to see areas of the Endangered Wolf Center that are off-limits to other tours, including the Animal Keeper Building!

All Spring Private Tours support a maximum of 10 guests. Tour groups may be asked to reschedule on days where tour activity might interrupt this miraculous time of year. Refunds will be given to groups unable to reschedule.

Option A – Spring Private Tour

$10 for adults, $8 for children ages 4-14, with a minimum per group of $40 (children 3 and under are free).
Option A includes the tour described above and is available at 10:00am, 11:00am, 1:00pm, and 3:00pm daily (except for Tuesdays).

Option B – Spring Private Tour + Enrichment or Training Experience

Enrichment: Participants watch up-close as members of the Animal Care team toss bones, ice blocks packed with rewards inside, or various scented objects into the habitats of the Center’s wolves, swift foxes, or African painted dogs for them to investigate and explore, encouraging natural behaviors. Enrichment opportunities are an important part of the animals’ care and well-being since enrichment encourages natural behaviors.

Training: Participants watch up-close as members of the Animal Care team perform training exercises with one of the Center’s canid species. Training helps the care team make sure that the animals have the best welfare possible and are happy and healthy. Each animal is invited daily to train and is rewarded with their favorite treats during the training session.

Option C – Spring Private Tour + Animal Ambassador Experience

$25 for adults, $23 for children ages 4-14, with a minimum per group of $100 (children 3 and under are free).

Option C includes a tour and an animal ambassador experience with one or more members of the Endangered Wolf Center Animal Care team and one of the Center’s animal ambassadors. Through the animal ambassador program, the Center can convey the importance of conservation, while bringing people closer to animals and helping them gain a further appreciation for the natural world. The Endangered Wolf Center’s ambassadors currently include a maned wolf, a fennec fox, and a western hognose snake!

Option C is available at 12:00pm daily (except for Tuesdays). Option C will not be offered on days when animal ambassadors are already scheduled for outreach programs.
