about the refuge
Our resident Grizzly bears Grinder and Coola have emerged from their 22nd hibernation period! Visit them at the Grouse Mountain Refuge for Endangered Wildlife or watch them on our webcams.
Imagine a wilderness sanctuary where endangered animals can explore and play, knowing they’re safe and secure. You’ll find all this and more at our research, education and conservation centre on the mountain. The Refuge also offers leading-edge interpretative programs that make learning about nature fun and fascinating.
