Don’t Miss Wolf Howls at Haliburton Forest This Summer

Don’t Miss Wolf Howls at Haliburton Forest This Summer

Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon? Trust us—it’s definitely not lame like that Pocahontas reference. Immersive, fascinating, and humbling, Wolf Howls at Haliburton Forest give participants the opportunity to experience wildlife on a personal level.

Visiting the forest to listen for a response from our resident wolf pack is popular amongst guests. In fact, participants regularly stay over in Haliburton Forest accommodations mid-week for a more private interaction. Groups of 12 and more are also eligible for private tours—great for bringing the extended family and friends, or even a work group.

Although we can’t guarantee that the wolves will answer our interpreter’s call, we have a pretty successful track record!

Wolf Howls at Haliburton Forest

This thrilling outdoor experience takes place in the evening. Starting off in the Seminar Building, participants first listen to a themed presentation on wolves, their ecology, and their relationship with humans.

Following the presentation, guests take a short walk into the forest with one of our stellar facilitation staff members, who will then attempt to howl up the wolf pack. And then, just listen!

While there are a few wild packs of wolves that roam Haliburton Forest’s 100,000-acre wilderness, our captive wolf pack has been on site since 1993, and has provided unparalleled research and outdoor education opportunities. Roaming a 15-acre enclosure, our pack has more than enough space to roam.

This bucket-list-worthy nature experience can create unforgettable memories for guests. But to make a full day of it, Haliburton Forest has many other immersive outdoor activities you can participate in prior to a wolf howl.
