AREA CLOSED: Critical Wildlife Habitat. Wildlife are denning or nesting in this area. Human presence may cause animals to abandon their young or become habituated. To minimize disturbance this area is closed to all entry.
The pups stay near the den until the pack is ready to move to a rendezvous site, usually when the pups are about eight weeks old. A rendezvous site acts as an intermediary home base where pups can learn to hunt without having to travel very far.
