Our Evening with Wolves fundraiser is back by popular demand! We had an overwhelming response to our recent event, so we are offering another chance to register for a wolf encounter you will never forget! Make memories with our wolves while supporting their new and comfortable homes.

You are invited to spend an evening with some special members of our Alaska Zoo Family. Meet one of the zoo's gray wolves and enjoy interactions with one of their longtime handlers, Education Director Stephanie Hartman and their zookeeper Tim Lescher.

This event is a fundraiser to help raise money for a new shelter* structures for the wolves. They came to the zoo as pups on Memorial Day weekend of 2006 and their needs for different housing have changed as they have aged. Your purchases in this fundraiser goes directly to the newly planned shelters which will give the wolves the comfort they need during winter months. Each shelter will be a partially buried culvert style design with earth and rock landscaping at the entrances. These new homes will provide shelter, comfort and warmth from cold or wet weather as the wolves age.
