Create an itinerary including Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center
Watch grizzly bears and gray wolves in natural habitats at Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center. This nonprofit zoo specializes in its focus on these two particular animals, which are part of the Yellowstone ecosystem. The center also distinguishes itself from many other zoos by hosting only animals that are not able to survive in the wild. The zoo began as a sanctuary for bears that were unable to continue living in the wild in 1993. Wolves were added to the sanctuary in 1996. The center is now connected with Yellowstone National Park and hosts several of the park's programs.

  • A rare chance for us to see Bears up close. They do a great job in rescuing and informing the public. Really enjoyed my time there (otters were really cool!)

  • Live bears, wolves, birds and fish. Also an otter!!
  • Loved the Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center! I took my family and it was a great experience. It is not a zoo, but has the feel of a very small zoo. The enclosures are well done and the Center is clean. The animals look well cared for and are all there because they were either injured or not able to live in the wild. The Center gives them a life and helps educate the public on their habits and history. I enjoyed how each enclosure tells how the particular animals came to live at the center.
