      The GWDC, an accredited wildlife park and educational center, is home to nine grizzly bears, two wolf packs and a small collection of birds of prey, all of which are unable to live in the wild for one reason or another. The bears are 'shown' in rotation throughout the day, taking it in turn to explore an outdoor habitat area and find food hidden by staff. The two wolf packs can be viewed at any time as they move around their separate areas. There's also an excellent museum and large gift shop.

      If you go:
      The centre is open 365 days a year (the bears don't hibernate) and entry is good for two consecutive days. Opening time is 8.30 am all year round; closing time is 8.30 pm throughout the summer, earlier at other times.
