Montana Grizzly Encounter

Female Grizzly bear

How can we see grizzly bears without getting dangerously close to them?   The Montana Grizzly Encounter is the solution to this dilemma.

MGE is a grizzly bear rescue and education sanctuary located in Bozeman Montana.  You can observe the bears in a natural habitat and learn about their habits, as well as how to stay safe in grizzly country.

The sanctuary has 6 bears, each with a unique story behind them.  Each rescued from a difficult situation.  Although we would rather that these bears could make it on their own in the wild, they would not survive.  Thank goodness for the Montana Grizzly Encounter which provides a home for them, as close to natural as possible.  Learn more about these Grizzly bears.

If you have done some camping, you know that you can buy ‘bear proof’ containers to protect your food from the bears.  Did you ever wonder how the company that makes the container can say that they are ‘bear proof’?  One of the ways is to send a prototype to Montana Grizzly Encounter and let the bears have at it.  From what we have heard, those grizzlies are pretty smart and it takes some real ingenuity to keep them out of any container.

Montana Grizzly Encounter is a true gem in the Bozeman area.  Make sure to schedule in some time to visit with the bears.  Check below to see which Bed and Breakfasts are located nearby.
