Loved this center. Though small, it has lots to get one interested. We enjoyed the wolf exhibit, the grizzly bears, and the aviary. The inside exhibits are awesome, so informative. The staff were so knowledgeable, full of interesting tidbits about the animals.

Awesome bears, love the eagles, poor wolves need to be set free. Awesome place!! Need more recovery centers, but let them go when they are healed!

Great way to see bears and wolves up close. Excellent way to inform how uneducated people upset the balance of nature by being reckless. The staff was wonderful and informative.

The animals are outdoors, yes. But, they have indoor viewing stations. There is a small warming hut where you can watch the bears. And in a different building, a room with huge windows allows you to watch the wolves.
