Folks, this place is awesome! You’re going to love it!
A two-and-a-half hour drive north of Jackson Hole will bring you to West Yellowstone, Montana, and the impressive Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center.
It’s a not-for-profit wildlife park and education facility which opened in 1993. The Center is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.
The Center has a number of exhibitions that look at grizzlies, wolves, ground squirrels, and birds of prey. It is currently working on a Riparian Habitat exhibition to include river otters, cutthroat trout, boreal toads, and American dippers. A new habitat in the works will feature river rapids.
The animals the Center keeps were orphans, born in captivity, or urban nuisance animals threatened with death.
What the Center does to care for the animals and what it teaches the public are cutting-edge and absolutely worth a visit!
It’s open 365 days a year with admission good for two consecutive days!
