Our group was amazed at what they didn't know about bears and wolfs. What a great learning experience, (life saving information.) Every hiker needs to know what the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center teaches. Also, if you own a home or cabin in the woods, you need to visit "The Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center. It is a "must."

This was located across the street from where we stayed. We saw tons of bison in the park but no bears or wolves. This was not only good for viewing but educational in an interesting way. They put some food up in a tree and we saw just how quickly a bear could climb a tree when motivated to do... More

This is an amazing place - every visit could be different - and the ticket is good for two days so you can always see something new the next day. It is NOT A ZOO - it is a refuge for injured or displaced wolves, grizzlies and birds of prey - and at the same time educating the public. You... More

This is a must see at feeding times! The bears and wolves are so cool to watch and see how they get fed and find their food. 10:15 am and 3:00 pm roughly are their feeding times- that's when to make plans to go!

We went to the Discovery Center for the benefit of our seven year old granddaughter. She loved it and so did we. The naturalists were so informative and every bit of the center was amazing!

So cool to be so close to wolves and grizzlie bears. We were just a few feet away. And there are warm buildings to watch the animals from if you are there in the winter.

A wonderful opportunity to see grizzlies and wolves, plus more animals in action. Learn about the animals and their care, as well as to be able to see how they adapt to their new home. These animals are being rehabilitated, and are unable to be released back into the wild, so this is a good home for them. Great place... More

This is a really great place to visit for persons of all ages. You see the bears eat and the wolves eat. Great exhibits and all. Very much worth the entrance fee.
