Kids loved watching the bears, and for $5 twice a day the kids can go into the bear habitat and hide food for the bears. Center is located just outside the west entrance into Yellowstone, and your admission is good for two days.

Cost was reasonable and they offer military discounts. Alot to learn and see, kids can do programs, crawl into a mock wolf den and play in the playground to burn some energy. 2020 a river otter exhibit is to be done.

We stopped here as we left Yellowstone National Park. We didn't see any bears or wolves in the wild, so we stopped here to see them up close. We were not disappointed. You are up close and they are very active.

This non profit organisation rescues wildlife from the Yellowstone park. The wolf collection has white and grey wolves and currently there are 4 grizzly bears all in good size enclosures. Animals are very well treated.

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.
