Wolf Park Opens New Educational Center

Dec 1, 2011

Tippecanoe County residents have a new resource to learn about wolves.

Wolf Park in Battle Ground officially unveiled its new educational facility, Thursday.

The Wright Center will be used for information programs, conferences, and large events.

Park Managing Director Elizabeth Rose says it will give greater access to those who come to the park.

Last year, about 3,500 students came to the park and there were 18,000 visitors total.

Wolf Park currently features 14 wolves and officials hope to breed even more this winter. 

The center costs about $150,000 and took about four months to complete.

The building is named after and made possible through a donation by board member Gladys Wright and her husband Al.

Next year will mark the Park's 40th anniversary.
