Saturday evening, head to Battle Ground to wish all the animals a happy birthday at the Wolf Park Birthday Party! All wolves, foxes, and coyotes are born in spring. The animals’ birthdays are all within a couple of weeks of each other around late April/early May, so Wolf Park has one big celebration! Each animal gets their own tasty, animal safe birthday cake to enjoy. Guests will have the chance to watch as the cakes are presented to the wolves. Each animal approaches this environmentally enriched activity with his or her own special flair.
