The Discovery Center is no mere roadside attraction: This nonprofit houses rescued wolves, grizzly bears, and raptors and features naturalist programs, educational displays, and a small museum. The wolves are always visible in their outdoor habitats, while employees rotate the grizzlies through their enclosure, hiding food under rocks to give the bears a challenge. Kid programs, bird of prey demos, and ranger-led presentations round out the offerings. Bottom line: It’s a good cause, and unlike inside the park, charismatic megafauna sightings are guaranteed.
