Your lifelong dream of taking a walk on the wild side is about to come true.
Your outing begins with a one-hou narrated bus ride through the Bald Eagle Preserve on your way to the Kroschel Wildlife Center owned by Steve Kroschel. Steve is well known for his experience working with wild animals for movies, such as Never Cry Wolf and the PBS Wild America series. He is truly the Doctor Doolittle of Alaska, interacting with his animals as their best friend and trustworthy caregiver.
Steve will guide you through this 60-acre park as you learn about the animals and see how they thrive in this protected habitat, retaining their independence while learning to trust humans. His center provides a home for numerous orphaned wild animals, including a wolf, Kodiak bear, wolverine, porcupine and reindeer, to name a few.
The behavior of these animals is quite intriguing -- you'll understand and appreciate the time it takes to gain the trust of these wild animals. Unsuited to release back into the wild, they will live out the rest of their natural lives with their friend and caregiver, Steve Kroschel.
