Wolves in New Jersey! The Lakota Wolf Preserve in Columbia
The Lakota Wolf Preserve in Columbia, New Jersey is a special place. Wolves that were born in captivity are able to live out their lives in the beautiful outdoors. There are also bobcats and foxes at Lakota. Wolves, and bobcats, and foxes, oh my!
The couple who run Lakota are dedicated to their animals and have run the preserve for over 15 years. They take wonderful care of their animals and truly love them. They have been committed to educating the public about wolves.
I’ve been there, and I can see how much they love their animals!
The public can take wolf-watching tours – don’t worry, the wolves are behind fences. They will also howl on cue!
The surroundings are beautiful. Columbia is actually part of Knowlton Township, in the Kittatinny Valley.
I took these photos last October. Sadly, this winter has been a struggle for the preserve because of the terrible weather and other unexpected issues. Sometimes the preserve has been closed for weeks.
If you'd like to help, you can sponsor a wolf! There are other ways to help out, too. Check out their website and Facebook page, too, for some gorgeous photographs and more information!
There is a wonderfully detailed description of how the wolf preserve got started here, and links to websites containing professional photos of the wolves!

P.S. I love comments and will answer back, but some WordPress blogs simply refuse to post my comments for some reason, even when I try with Twitter. I don't know why. I also cannot comment on blogs that only accept Google+ comments.
Thanks for visiting New Jersey Memories!
