WEST YELLOWSTONE – Open 365 days a year, the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center allows visitors to get a close look at two of the Greater Yellowstone region’s most charismatic species. The center is home to nine bears and eight wolves that would have been destroyed if they didn’t have a home in captivity.
The bears, from Alaska, Montana and Yellowstone National Park, were all orphaned as cubs or were considered nuisance animals. The wolves were born in a facility unable to house them and were offered a home at the GWDC.
The center opens at 8:30 a.m. every day of the year, but its closing time changes seasonally. It will be open until 7 p.m. through Sept. 29 and close at 6 p.m. beginning Sept. 30.
Seasonal closing times for the habitat can be found below.
Sept. 3 – Sept. 29: 7 p.m.
Sept. 30 – Oct. 27: 6 p.m.
Oct. 28 – Apr. 18, 2013: 4 p.m.
Apr. 19 – May 9, 2013: 6 p.m.
May 10 – Sept. 1, 2013: 8:30 p.m.
