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.
