Kids, are you ready to see some pretty amazing creatures up close and personal? That's exactly what will happen when you visit the Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center in Yellowstone!
Here, you can see LIVE grizzlies and wolves and get a fascinating glimpse into their worlds! You can watch the bears forage for food, play in their ponds and with each other.
Early morning and evening visitors may witness active wolf packs howling. Throughout your visit, you can enjoy a number of activities too, which will make your day even more fascinating and filled with learning experiences!
Head to the museum where you can explore a number of world-class exhibits. Here, there are six thematic areas, including over 25 taxidermic mounts of grizzly bears so you can really study these amazing creatures up close.
Visit the Naturalist Cabin to see exceptional views of two separate wolf packs through immense floor-to-ceiling windows. On those colder days, the large fireplace is very welcoming too!
Don't miss a chance to see the Raptor Exhibit either. Available May thru November, this exhibit is home to raptors who can't be released into the wild, and kids can ask all the questions they want during the weekly bird-of-prey programs.
Speaking of programs, the Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center also offers a number of programs perfect for kids and their education.
Keeper Kids is designed for 5 to 12 year olds, where a unique hands-on 30 minute program teaches kids about grizzly bear eating habits. There are bear pepper spray demonstrations, as well as keeper enrichment chats.
With a playground for those active little ones too, it's a WILD day out in one of the most beautiful spots in Montana. Are you ready to walk on the wild side? Great! The grizzlies & wolves are waiting, so let's go say hi!
