Here’s your opportunity to participate in a “Citizen Science” project and document important behavioral data critical to understanding the Exhibit Pack dynamics. Participants camp out in the Center’s auditorium in full view of the wolf viewing windows! The next morning, after a relaxing continental breakfast, analyze the evening’s observations and interpret the behavior. Bring your sense of adventure, a sleeping bag and pillow for this unique overnight opportunity at the Center!
