The Great Bear Wilderness

Go eye-to-eye with iconic North American animals at Great Bear Wilderness! Encounter bison exhibited in a prairie setting; view bald eagle in a mesh aviary behind a virtually invisible barrier; and observe a pack of Mexican gray wolves behind a unique glass inside Regenstein Woods. Then, enter the bear yards and get an underwater view of the polar bears and grizzlies diving and playing in their swimming pools.
