On the first day of this informative and educational trip, we will visit the Wolf Education and Research Center in Winchester, Idaho. There you will observe wild wolves in their natural habitat and be given a tour of the facility by a wolf biologist. The Wolf Center’s mission is dedicated to providing public education and scientific research concerning the gray wolf and its habitat in the Northern Rocky Mountains.
From there we will travel to our put-in on the Salmon River for five days of fun rapids, relaxation, and informal discussion about wolves, while floating through one of the deepest canyons in North America. Gary Lane, owner of Wapiti River Guides, is the lead guide and is a trained wildlife biologist with 40 years experience running rivers in Idaho, Oregon and Alaska.
