Wolf Centre: An Ontario Signature Educational Experience
Inspiring the Conservation of Canadian Wolves
Educating the Public About Wolf Behaviour and Wolf Ecology
The Wolf Centre is a 5,000 square foot facility that houses exhibits, a cinema and classroom, a retail space, a large indoor observatory, and it is wheelchair accessible! Visit the observatory and maybe catch a glimpse of Haliburton Forest’s wolf pack: permanent residents of Haliburton Forest since 1993.
With live wolfcams and wolf exhibits, you can almost always catch a glimpse of our wolves as they wander through their 15 acre forested environment. Plus, with our mission to educate, you can personalize your visit by asking our friendly staff more about our wolves.
Feel Closer to the Wolves Through Haliburton Forest’s Wolf Howl Experience
Many people will go their whole lives never hearing a wolf’s howl. Every Thursday evening in July and August join Wolf Centre staff for an interpretive program, followed by a short walk where your guide engages our wolf pack in a round of howls. We can’t guarantee a response from the wolves but we have a pretty good track record.
