Raven Run was established in 1991 to serve as a nature preserve for the public to visit. It is located on 318 acres of wooded land with 3 miles of trails, and it contains multiple animal exhibits housing wolves, otters, ravens, cranes, river otters, and bald eagles. The sanctuary has some rare animals that are not common in other area zoos or preserves such as red pandas and ring-tailed lemurs!

The wolf exhibit at Raven Run Nature Sanctuary is home to three wolves: Sawtooth Mountain Pack. In this exhibit, there is a large enclosure surrounded by trees where people can come see these large predators up close. The enclosure has been designed to feel like a typical environment for wolves. There is also an exhibit called Prairie Run, which houses two Mexican gray wolves! This is the largest display for this species in any zoo, and it's only one of three zoos outside of Mexico that houses them!

Raven Run Nature Sanctuary is open every day from dawn until dusk except December 25th, 26th, and 27th. Visitors can take a walk along any of the trails while enjoying their favorite pastime or simply take a stroll through the nature sanctuary. It is a great opportunity to view some amazing animals while exercising in a beautiful setting.
