Educational Wolf Watch Tours

Wildlife & Wolf Photography

Sponsorship Opportunity

Learn all there is to know about this endangered species. We offer guided educational wolf tours of the preserve called a Wolf Watch. Once again, the howling of wolves echo through the mountains of the Delaware Water Gap in Knowlton Township, Warren County, NJ. Photo opportunities of a lifetime and the experience of watching and listening to packs of British Columbian, Timber, and Arctic wolves will be yours. View wolves here in the East in a natural surrounding for the first time in over a century. Bobcat, lynx, and foxes also reside at the preserve.

Experienced or beginner photographers can take advantage of our guided wildlife and wolf photography or video sessions. Guest will be permitted to photograph through portals around each individual wolf compound. This is an unbelievable opportunity to take breathtaking photos of the animals in their natural enclosures.

Help us protect these incredible animals through our unique sponsorship opportunity. The compounds and care we provide to our animals is exceptional in the industry. We hope to continue this rewarding work, and your contributions are appreciated to help us continue protecting the species.

Please know this not a private tour, there will be others on the tour with you. There is a guide that will be giving a presentation.  If your children are loud and disruptive on the tour they will scare away the animals and ruin it for you and the other customers who paid just as much as you did. Please keep control over your kids. We want all to have a good experience.
