Projects at the GWDC
To further our mission, we will be adding exhibits over the next decade to highlight the complex inter-relationships of predators, prey, and habitats. The Riparian Exhibit will be a complex system of ponds, streams, and terrain which will allow visitors a rich understanding of the diverse relationships between grizzly bears, grey wolves, and representative species in a typical riparian habitat. A “green-built” indoor facility will include underwater and habitat viewing of river otters and cutthroat trout, as well as classroom and additional exhibit space.
Eight new bear dens will be the first step toward saving more bears from being euthanized in the surrounding area. A new outdoor bear habitat will ultimately be constructed on the remaining acre of undeveloped GWDC land.
Our vision is to tell the story of river otters, cutthroat trout, and other riparian species, and why their habitat matters to grizzly bears and grey wolves that will inspire the health and survival of the ecosystem as a whole.
