This was an incredible wildlife conservation center. We were able to see the wildlife up close as the interact with other animals in their species. There were signs posted that gave us information about the animals and their backgrounds. It was a fun and educational experience. The bears were especially exciting to see so close. If you ever have the opportunity to go, it is definitely worth stopping and exploring.
