NOTE: Due to health and safety concerns surrounding COVID-19, Wolf Ridge will not be hosting an open house this summer. Our priority during this time is the safety and well being of our participants, staff, and the broader community. We hope to see you at next year’s open house event.

Join us for a day of outdoor fun and adventure. Members, local community folks, and curious passers-by are all welcome to enjoy a day of indoor rock climbing, adventure ropes, meeting our live raptors and porcupine, hiking, and canoeing.  All events are free.


Please check in at the office when you arrive.

Come for all or part of the day.
