Educational Wolf Tours at The Lakota Wolf Preserve in Columbia, New Jersey

Explore and learn about some of the world's most amazing animals through our educational Wolf Watch tours. Upon arrival you can enjoy either a scenic 1/2 mile nature walk from the parking area to the preserve or we have a shuttle bus that can drive you there. Once you are at the preserve you will be invited into the observation area in the center of the preserve. You will be surrounded by 4 different packs of wolves.

Wolf Watch

Wolf Watch tours are led by owner Jim Stein and Becky Mace, who have raised and care for all the animals at the preserve. During their presentations you will learn about the social structure of wolf packs, their eating habits, their interaction with man, and many other interesting facts. We will try to educate you about the true behavior of the wolf and will be glad to answer any questions you may have. While in the observation area you will be able to watch the wolves play, interact with each other and maybe even hear them howl! Truly an experience of a lifetime. You will also get to see and learn about our fox and bobcats that live at the preserve. Yes you can take photos on the wolf watch tour.
