This is an excellent non-profit centre that's working hard to create an memorable wildlife experience. The animals look well cared for. The bears are rotated on an hourly basis in a landscaped viewing enclosure. This ensures they're always active and visible. The wolves are more active at the start and end of each day. Our entry pass was valid for... More

This place was so great, you can see Grizzly's and wolfs up close. Each one has a story. When we were there the wolf's started to howl, then each pack would howl. Great experience.

We enjoyed our visit here, especially since it was early September and we did not manage to see any bears in the National Park at this time. Although small, this venue was well laid out and we had very close views of a Grizzly bear and of two grey wolves. Also a few rescued birds were to be seen. We... More

They rescue animals that would have been destroyed and made a great natural museum for people to visit. This is an excellent place to see, and the ticket is worth 2 days of visits. It lets your family see the wolves, bears and birds up close.

Wolves, bears and raptors - what more could you ask for after a night full of thunder, lightening and rain - too gloomy for a run into the Park. Great displays, intriguing ranger talk, nice kids-focus too. This was the only way I wanted to see bears and wolves - with a fence between us. Learned more about YNP, and... More

great information about grizzlies and wolves. their history, biology, and the actual animals themselves. we spent 4 hours here. the best part for us was the live animals. seeing them close up like we could never do in the wild. they are magnificent and well cared for. great for adults and kids.

We were here as soon as they opened and apparently they spread the food out over the rocks first thing cause the bears were out scavenging the rocks for their food. Very cool to watch! The wolves were I think a little later risers, as such we didn't really see them much. I really enjoyed the Birds of Prey. And... More

My 6 year old son and 7 year old daughter participated in the Keeper Kids program. The program is $2 per child. They are able to learn from one of the Naturalists about the Bears and then they go with the Naturalist into the Bear Habitat to hide the food for a bear to find later. It was an awesome... More

We enjoyed a couple of hours here one morning during our trip to Yellowstone. It was fun to see bears and wolves within a few feet. The enclosures are large and the animals seemed to be treated well. Loved watching the bears hunt under the rocks and shake the trees for their breakfast! Reasonable priced.
