To reserve a place on the tour, register at the Colorado Wolf & Wildlife Center website: http://www.wolfeducation.org/makereservation.html

Still indicate on the Beckwourth Doers meetup group site the number of people going to the Colorado Wolf & Wildlife Center.

Price for the tour is $10.00/adult and $7.00 for children 12 and under.

We will leave from the Southmoor RTD park & ride at 9:30AM. Distance to Divide, Colorado is ~93 miles.

Come walk with one of our experienced and knowledgeable guides, and learn why it is important to preserve our diminishing wildlife -- not only for their existence but ours as well. Our personalized, ONE-HOUR WALKING TOURS through the sanctuary are fun and educational. We guarantee an up-close view of the beautiful, majestic and elusive wolf. We consider ourselves not only a sanctuary for animals but for people too!
Tours last between 60-75 minutes on average. Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your tour time.
All tours are by reservation only. We welcome school groups, cub/boy/girl scout groups, nature enthusiasts, work parties and any other organization you may belong to.
Some of the stories regarding our animals’ rescues are illustrative and not always pleasant. We do not “sugar coat” or hide truths of things that often times happen to animals in captivity or otherwise. We will always respect our visitors by not getting demonstrative or too graphic in detail, but please consider if you are ready for your children to learn about the fur industry, canned hunts or other abusive situations that animals end up in. Our focus is conservation, education and preservation.

RESERVATION POLICY
All tour requests require a contact phone number where you can be reached in the event there is a scheduling conflict or an animal emergency at the Center which would cause us to reschedule.
A Visa, Mastercard or Discover card is required to secure your reservation. Space per tour is limited and we often have a waiting list. If you wish to pay with cash you will still need to secure your reservation with a credit card and inform the person taking your reservation that you will be paying cash. Upon arrival, if you pay with cash, your reserved credit card number is shredded. If you do not show, your credit card will be charged for the tour. If that occurs, you may call the center to request a tax-deductible donation receipt for the amount of the missed tour. If you do not wish to use a credit card, you may send in a check or come to the center beforehand, but your time cannot be reserved until that time. However, all VIP tours, photo tours with more than four people, standard tours with 10 or more people, feeding tours of five or more people, and all special events require pre-payment at time of reservation.
Please Note: From Oct 1 through April 30 you will be allowed one rescheduling within 30 days if you are unable to attend a tour due to weather conditions. In the event of inclement weather you will be allowed one cancellation and you will be responsible for giving us a new day/time with in 12 hours. You must speak with someone at the center to reschedule. If you are unable to reschedule within that timeframe, please request a tax-deductible donation receipt for the amount of the missed tour. Unfortunately, we are unable to allow rescheduling of tours during our busy summer season.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
CWWC is located on a dirt road that is approximately 0.2 miles long. You may want to call ahead for road conditions during inclement weather. We try to keep our roads well maintained at all times, but we cannot avoid rainy, snowy or muddy conditions. Any front wheel drive vehicle with adequate tires can travel our road. Refreshments are not offered (some snacks, water and sodas are available for purchase in the visitor center), but we do have a picnic area for use with prior approval from CWWC staff. Noise must be kept to a minimum while you use this facility. Please ask for more details prior to your visit.
