This is a small educational facilty. But, a great cause. It's wonderful that they take care of the hurt animals and they are expanded.

Enjoyed the center very much. Nice displays, with good signs and information. Able to see wolves and grizzly bears fairly up close. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Definitely a stop for families.
