This was a very pleasant and interesting venture. The admission price covered two days, and in our opinion a good value. Be prepared to take some time, relax, and wait for and watch the grizzly bears.

The Discovery Center has a scientific section on grizzly bears and is home to 8 grizzly bears at the time of this writing. It is a learning facility very suitable to children.

Basically a zoo for bears and wolves with raptors thrown in to boot. Quite enjoyed the habitats and the narration as well as the inside displays. They do a wonderful job of saving the animals that would otherwise be put down.

The animals are outdoors, yes. But, they have indoor viewing stations. There is a small warming hut where you can watch the bears. And in a different building, a room with huge windows allows you to watch the wolves.
