You're probably well aware of what a wolf howl is, and maybe even you've heard one once or twice. But we doubt you've had too much experience of public wolf howls, where people attempt to hear genuine wolf howls by mimicking them. Well, tonight's Algonquin Park wolf howl is exactly that.\nOn Thursday at Algonquin Provincial Park, visitors can partake in a public wolf howl put on by the park. That means getting a bunch of people together and having the park's staff imitate wolf howls in hopes of hearing real wolves respond.\nThe howl starts at 8 p.m. but the park is asking people to come early, make sure your car has gas, and dress warmly.\nThese howl excursions only happen on Thursdays in August, weather (and wolves) permitting.\nWhen it was announced on Instagram that there would be a howl tonight, one person begged the park to hold another one next week when he would be there.\nPublic Wolf Howl Tonight!Meet at the Outdoor Theatre for 8:00 pm- Arrive early- Program lasts about 3 hours- Fill vehicle with gas - Dress warmly- No dogs allowed pic.twitter.com/N8xy9EuUBJ— Algonquin Park (@Algonquin_PP) August 15, 2019\nAnother person commented that "when I was a kid I went to so many [howls], maybe seven or eight."\nThat same person said that he always plans trips to the park in August in hopes of hearing the howls.\nThe whole thing will last for about three hours and the park expects 400 to 500 vehicles to show up.\nThe public wolf howl might seem weird to some but it is obviously very popular based on attendance alone. At the only howl last year, approximately 2,200 people attended.\nAlgonquin Park Public Wolf Howl Tonight! — After a presentation about #wolf #ecology, travel by car to a place where wild #wolves may answer the imitations given by the park staff.

Sometimes we would get a response but I always wondered if it was just another group of campers or staff. They were fun excursions.— Sharon Allen (@SharonLA1212) August 14, 2019\nDespite holding the public howls a few times a year, there hasn't been a successful howl since August 15, 2013, exactly six years ago today.\nCould tonight finally be the night? The six-years-to-the-day anniversary seems like a fitting time for there to be another one.\nNarcity reached out to Algonquin Provincial Park staff for additional comment, but everyone was hard at work preparing for tonight's howl.\nThere are stories everywhere.
