It is now known as the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, but does a great job of getting people up close to the animals. The Bears are obviously a huge attraction with both brown and black bears, and the feeding time is always interesting, although disappointing...More

It's now known as the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center and is NOT located in Girdwood, but 10 miles further down the Seward Highway at the mouth of the Portage River valley.  That said, the center is the best place to see up-close-and-personal some of the...More

This place is pretty cool. They have raised orphaned animals native to Alaska and have them in large enclosures (basically a small game preserve) to be viewed by the public in a safe-yet-natural setting. Make sure you check the hours of operation (different in summer...More
