BEARS: IMAGINATION AND REALITY EXHIBIT
BEARS: IMAGINATION AND REALITY EXHIBIT
 
The Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center is the permanent home of the world-class exhibit BEARS: Imagination and Reality. After traveling the country with phenomenal success, the Center was able to acquire the exhibit as yet another educational tool. The display is an interactive museum exhibit produced by the Science Museum of Minnesota comparing and contrasting the bear of myth, art, literature, history and folklore with the bear scientists, outdoorsmen and researchers know. Features include over 25 taxidermic mounts of grizzly and black bears in naturalistic settings with examples of food and behavior habits. The six thematic areas of the exhibit include: * The Sacred Bear * The Vanishing Bear * The Bear of Our Imagination * The World of the Bear * Bear Encounters * Bears, Wilderness and People.
