Outreach program
Endangered Wolf Center's trained staff and Docents travel to schools, businesses, and other organizations to present an educational program focusing on wolves and other canids and their unique adaptations to life in the wild. The presentation revolves around a "Discovery Box" that utilizes various biofacts, including wolf pelts, skulls, plaster paw prints, radio collars, deer pelts, antlers and hooves. Current issues regarding wildlife conservation and aspects of captive breeding of endangered animals and reintroduction are also presented. The program also includes a video that highlights the animals and accomplishments of the Endangered Wolf Center.

Onsite programs and tours
All visitors to the Endangered Wolf Center must be accompanied by a staff member or a Docent to visit the animal area. Two scheduling options are available for daytime visits to the Endangered Wolf Center: selection between two Open Date visits each Saturday (usually chosen by small groups and individuals) or a private group visit that is pre-arranged and can be scheduled Monday thru Saturday. Visitors that wish to tour the enclosures may chose a program/tour combination or simply participate in a tour. The program that precedes the tour is similar to the outreach program described above. The tour is a half-mile round trip walking tour of the canid enclosures and is guided by a trained Docent or staff member. Topics covered during the tour include captive breeding of endangered species, recovery, and reintroduction.

Evening Camp Fire and Wolf Programs
Visitors enjoy the opportunity to howl with the wolves during fall and winter evening programs. During the Camp Fire program, guests gather around a campfire to hear positive wolf stories told by Endangered Wolf Center storytellers, then travel through the night on a short hike through the woods for an opportunity to "hopefully" hear the wolves howl. During the Wolf Program, guests enjoy a presentation that explains why wolves howl and the various ways canids communicate with each other. This program is also followed by a hike through the woods to hear the wolves howl.
