Washington State University Bear Center

The only grizzly bear research center of its kind in the USA, created because there aren't any other places that have enough grizzly bears. During the warm weather months the bears can be seen foraging or playing in the exercise yard, splashing in their pool, or lounging in their outside runs right along the edges of the parking lot, just off the road. Visitors are welcome.
