The Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center offers every visitor to Yellowstone a chance to uniquely experience the world of grizzly bears and gray wolves.
All the animals at the Center are unable to survive in the wild and serve as ambassadors for their wild counterparts. The center is home to grizzly bears from as far away as Alaska and as close as Yellowstone National Park. Each bear and its story are unique but they all have something in common; they came to reside here after becoming nuisance bears or orphaned cubs of a nuisance bear. These bears learn to obtain food from people, damage property in search of food or become aggressive toward people and are usually killed. Instead of being destroyed, the eight bears that reside at the center were rescued. The center provides the bears with a large outdoor habitat that includes many natural features including grass, logs, trees, talus fields, mulch digging areas, a waterfall and deep pond. Each bear is also provided with a private indoor area.
Make sure to time your visit with the feeding hours, when keepers hide food within the habitat. Watch as the bears sniff out their food, dig it up and catch fish just like they did in the wild.
The center is also home to eleven wolves that live in three different packs. The wolves were born in captivity and are unable to live in the wild. The facilities where they were born did not have room to keep them and the GWDC was able to provide them a home. Here, the wolves give visitors an up-close look at their normally secretive lives. The wolves eat, play, reinforce their dominance hierarchy and howl right in front of the viewing areas.
