Mission : The Wolf Education and Research Center (WERC) is a unique educational facility on the Nez Perce Reservation in northern Idaho. One of the largest of its kind in North America, this site encompasses twenty acres of rolling timberland with meadows and streams. A fitting home for the Sawtooth Pack: Wolves of the Nez Perce. These wolves serve as ambassadors for their wild cousins by educating the public . WERC is dedicated to providing public education concerning the gray wolf and its habitat in the Northern Rocky Mountains. It is our goal to provide the public with the rare opportunity to observe and learn about wolves in their natural habitat. The Visitor Center is increasing public awareness of wolves and related issues with programs that educate, awaken and motivate local as well as national residents, which may be the key for preserving wolves and their habitats in perpetuity.
