Meander through the park in your car or on foot, stopping to admire the animal residents, including dozens of elk, moose, musk oxen, and Hugo, the center’s beloved grizzly bear. For an extra fee, you can opt to take a behind-the-scenes tour of the facility to learn more about the animals and their trainers and to gain access to some of the park’s off-limits animal enclosures.

Lovely conservation center. They take in animals unable to survive on their own and keep them in decent sized enclosures. It's got a very nice gift shop and a food truck where you can get coffee, pop, and reindeer hot dogs or reindeer Polish sausage! If you're out this way and have a little extra time, check it out!! Definitely a place I would support.
Affordable family fun and education can walk or drive to see the different animals. Can even do a combination of both (walk/drive), so it can be enjoyed in any weather as you can get in and out of your vehicle as you wish. Nice gift shop with a variety of gifts, a decent selection of food. I go at LEAST once a year and every year there is an improvement to make it even better and something different. Try to time your trip with the bear feedings, really neat!
