I was less than thrilled to be going here but it turned out to be a good experience. They take in animals they are hurt or neglected and would be otherwise euthanized. They had wolves, bears, and eagles. The bears were fun to watch as they were very active. They are taken out for "show" for short periods of time and they are rotated so there is always something to see. You can get fairly close. Worth a trip if you are nearby.

An opportunity to view bears wolves up close. The Center is open from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. every day of the year.The exhibits are interesting and well designed. We didn't have an opportunity to attend some of the talks, but the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable.

This is an outdoor park with wolves, grizzlies, and a couple of eagles. For a town the size of W. Yellowstone, it is about what I would expect.

We feared this attraction would be little more than a tourist trap, but it is very well done, and there is no question they care about their animals. We learned a lot about both wolves and grizzly bears.

This was our 4th visit and it was nice to see the many additions and improvements made over the years. The staff is very friendly and will answer questions without hesitation. The grizzlies and wolves are awesome. We enjoyed the new Raptor exhibit. Gift shop has a wonderful selection of items. Can't wait to go back!
