Owner description: Yellowstone Wildlife Sanctuary is the only public refuge in Montana to house native animals that cannot be returned to the wild due to injury or habituation to humans. We care for over 40 animals and birds, many placed here by Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife & Parks, including wolves, mountain lions, black bears, bison, elk, bobcat, fox, coyote, eagles, hawks, owls and many more. The sanctuary offers visitors an unparalleled chance to learn about these and other animals by observing them at close range and through interpretive displays.

Nice to see, but not easy to view and photograph. Highlight was the feeding of Lewis and Clark, bears were hard to view.

Spent the better part of the afternoon strolling around the grounds. Able to get fairly close to the animals, so you can really see them. You have to stop by and see "Poe" the talking crow. It's really amazing. It's cool how each enclosure has a sign about the animal and how it got to the center. Staff was great and answered lots of our questions. Stop by the information center in town to pick up a brochure that has a $1.00 off coupon for up to 6 people. Excellant value and lots of fun.

The Beartooth Nature Center is the only public refuge in Montana to house native animals that cannot be returned to the wild due to injury or habituation to humans. They care for about 60 animals. There's a minimal fee for entry but you won't be disappointed. Each animals habitat has a sign that described the story behind the animal. The Nature Center has bought other land which would provide for an even bigger and better space for the animals and would also allow them to care for more animals, however they need to raise the money to build and move the animals.
This place shouldn't be missed if you are driving through Red Lodge on the way to the Beartooth Pass and Yellowstone!
