Mission: Wolf, Gardner

#67 of 164 in Wildlife in Colorado

Education is our purpose. We currently care for up to 40 captive-born wolves and wolf-dog crosses and several horses. The refuge supports a primitive visitor center that provides visitors and volunteers with hands-on working experience. Socialized ambassador wolves travel nationally, offering public education while stimulating people to care about and respect nature.

  • way up in the mountain, but great views! Our guide Kayce was very informitive and enjoyed the work she is doing at Missioin Wolf. We didn't get to interact with the wolf's, but still enjoyed the visit...  more »
  • This is a traditional stop when we are in the area - so our fifth trip over two years. Our boys LOVE to really get into the feeding prep process of this amazing sanctuary! However...that is by choice!...  more »
  • Be prepared to roll up your sleeves and be part of something amazing. While you can visit and tour for the day (donations recommended), I highly recommend that you also spend a few hours during the middle of the day to volunteer. My kids were 7 and 9 the first time we went and they were able to push dirt around and create a nice little rock wall/path around the bathrooms. The following year they hauled firewood. Mission:Wolf is self sustainable with solar power, water catchment, their own gardens/GreenHouse and almost everything there is from recycled and donated materials. We look forward to to going every year.
  • Really cool experience seeing and interacting with the wolves.
