Discovery Tram Tourbison mom and calf 2016

Enjoy a comfortable Discovery Tram Tour through 435 acres of  stunning meadows and forests. You'll get an eye-to-eye view of fascinating animals like Willow the moose calf, elk, deer, bison, and others as they explore their natural habitat.

A friendly naturalist narrates each tour, sharing fun facts about the animals you're seeing. Every season offers something new: See babies in the spring, elk bugling in late summer, and thick wooly coats in winter. Each tour is different!

Baby season

Spring means baby season in the Free-Roaming Area. Newborn bison calves, bighorn lambs, and goslings can all be spotted from the comfort of a Discovery Tram Tour. Meet the babies!

Get even closer

Photo Tours, perfect for shutterbugs, offer optimal views for taking beautiful photos. If you're interested in the animal care process, book a Keeper Tour and ride in the back of the keeper's truck as they make their daily rounds.
