Wind Wolves Preserve (Back and Better)
Wind Wolves Preserve recently reopened to the public on March 4, 2017.
Due to the preserve’s roads and trails that had been damaged from flooding and erosion, it was closed for a couple of months.
Thanks to the many volunteers that helped repair the trails, Wind Wolves is now open daily from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Go out and enjoy a wonderful hike, bike ride, or picnic with friends and family for free!
With many trails to choose from and animals to see, Wind Wolves Preserve provides a great family fun adventure.
During your hike, you may encounter many animals such as Tule Elk, bobcats, kit foxes, and blunt-noses leopard lizards.
With 93,000 acres of land, Wind Wolves Preserve is California’s largest non-profit organization.
People are welcome to donate any time online or through the mail.
By donating today, you are helping to ensure that these lands not only stay open to the public free of charge but also to preserve these beautiful landscapes.
The Wildlands Conservancy mission is “To preserve the beauty and biodiversity of the earth and to provide programs so that children may know the wonder and joy of nature.”
They do just that by providing free educational programs for children of all ages. Since 1998, 170,000 children have participated.
Wind Wolves Preserve is about a 25 mile drive from Taft and a 34 mile drive from Bakersfield.
It is located at 10619 Maricopa Highway, Bakersfield, CA 93311.
