Nature's Calling!calf and connie

Enjoy a comfortable Discovery Tram Tour through 435 acres of stunning meadows and forests. For 50 minutes, you'll get an eye-to-eye view of fascinating animals like the new moose calf, Roosevelt elk, bison, and more 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: babies in spring and summer, elk bugling in the fall, and animals in thick woolly coats in winter. Each guided tour is different!



Meet the moose calf and other babies

A new moose calf, newborn bison and caribou calves, bighorn lambs, and goslings can be spotted in our Free-Roaming Area. Meet the babies!
