Howl with the pack during Wolf Awareness Week at Big Bear Alpine Zoo

Celebrate the final day of Wolf Awareness Week at Big Bear Alpine Zoo, sharpen your skills in wolf behavior interpretation or join the pack in a community howl. Zoo keepers will be highlighting the zoo’s wolf packs on Saturday, May 21, with hourly enrichment presentations from noon until 3 p.m. Special activities for guests of all ages will keep everyone howling.

During the week of October 15-21, keepers at the Big Bear Alpine Zoo will emphasize the importance of wolves to their ecosystem with daily dedicated keeper talks. On Saturday, October 21, the Zoo will place specific attention on the roles that wolves play in maintaining this delicate balance through keeper talks and enrichment presentations.

The Big Bear Alpine Zoo staff works to educate the public about the roles that all animals play in perpetuating a healthy environment, emphasizing the greater role that humans play in protecting both species and habitat. Like a large mosaic, a healthy environment is comprised of many integral sections. In parts of the United States, wolves play a vital role in maintaining the delicate balance of their habitat.

Celebrate the final day of Wolf Awareness Week at the Big Bear Alpine Zoo on October 21 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
