About the Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center

The Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center of Yellowstone is an AZA Accredited, not-for-profit Wildlife Park and Educational Facility.

The main purpose of the Center is to help visitors gain knowledge about grizzlies and wolves through educational programs. Visitors can spend their time watching these fascinating animals interact in their outdoor habitats. If you want to be guaranteed to see bears and wolves in Yellowstone, come visit us! The Center offers a variety of different programs and activities for the whole family.

Grizzly bears that live at the Center are animals that were unable to survive in the wild for different reasons. Many were orphaned when their mothers became used to obtaining food from human areas. Others had been labeled “nuisance bears” because they were becoming dangerously comfortable around humans.

These animals have a second chance at the Center. Their stories help share an important lesson. From them we learn how humans can help make sure that bears in the wild stay wild forever.

The wolves were captive-born, unplanned litters and cannot be released into the wild. The Center agreed to take pups from different litters and were given the opportunity to develop strong social ties.

The Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center is staffed with caring naturalists who are very helpful and knowledgeable. How cool is it that the kids can hide "snacks" for the Grizzly bears to find right inside their habitat! The animals were very respected and cared for.

This is my second time visiting and it seems to be better than the last time. The displays were well done and informative, the live bird show was a must. They rotate through a large selection of bears about every hour so the longer you stay the more bears you will see.
