Live Wolf at Patuxent Research Refuge
Friends of Patuxent presents:

Saturday, October 20th, 2018
Join us at the National Wildlife Visitor Center to see a live wolf from Ironwood Wolves.

Three different showings (10 AM, 12:30 PM, 3:00 PM). Each showing is one hour long. Visitors ages 13 & up will require a ticket that costs $10. Visitors ages 12 & under will require a ticket that costs $5. Buy Tickets at:

The one hour program includes a discussion of family life, habitat, diet, and myths and facts about wolves. Learn about the important role that wolves play in the ecosystem and why we should respect them rather than fear them.

Ironwood Wolves will be bringing their wolf ambassador, Luther
Born in 2018, Luther is a black-phased wolf and the newest addition to the Ironwood Wolves program.

After the program, feel free to explore the National Wildlife Visitor Center wolf exhibit and other displays. In addition, enjoy Family Fun: Wonderful Wolves, in which you can learn more about wolves with hands-on activities, games and crafts. Great for all ages. Family Fun is free and included in the price of your ticket.
