KEEPER KIDS

Designed for kids ages 5-12, this unique hands-on 30-minute program teaches kids about grizzly bear eating habits. Then they will accompany the naturalist into the bear habitat to hide food for the bears. After the food is hidden, they can see first-hand how bears use their sense of smell to search out the food they had hidden.

This is a first-come first-serve activity offered twice a day in the summer. Space is strictly limited to 30 kids per session. Sign up by the admissions counter no later than 15 minutes before the program starts on the day that you wish to take part. There is a $5 participation fee; all other programs are free with the price of admission. Kids can choose their favorite animal button as a souvenir.

RAPTOR RAP

Discover all the facts about the birds of prey that reside at the Center.

All of the birds that are permitted to reside at the Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center have been determined, by veterinarians, to be non-releasable into the wild. Some of the birds have been hit by vehicles and are unable to fly or see well, others have behavioral challenges that make it impossible for survival in the wild.
