Black Bears

Yukon Creek

Journey into the wilds of the Canadian north woods in Yukon Creek, where you’ll spy a majestic bald eagle, lynx, burly reindeer, snow-white arctic foxes, and more. Yukon Creek recreates an abandoned research site in a Canadian boreal forest bordering the tundra. Follow the path of footprints and animal tracks to an abandoned logger’s cabin. Along the way you can examine pages from researchers’ journals chronicling their encounters with native wildlife.

And you'll never forget a visit with black bear brothers Smoky and Bubba, who came to us from the/umbraco/umbraco.aspx#content Appalachian Bear Rescue in Tennessee. Seeing these large, lumbering animals up close is truly breathtaking.
