Located just 15 miles south of Olympia, WA, Wolf Haven sits on 80 acres of rare Mima Mound prairie and woodlands. Visiting groups can enjoy guided tours or special, age-appropriate, educational programs. They also have a unique adopt-a-wolf program and opportunities for both individual and corporate membership.Wolf Haven is a participant in the Species Survival Plan which is a partnership between captive facilities and the US Fish and Wildlife Service.
