Canadian Wilds Construction Update: North Path Closure
To create some exciting new habitats and spaces in the Canadian Wilds, we are undergoing an extensive construction project which will temporarily shift pathways and move some animals offsite until the construction is completed.
While some Canadian Wilds species are currently not viewable, the good news is that you’ll still be able to see several iconic Canadian species when you visit the Canadian Wilds South Path. On this path, you will see cougars, black bears, grizzly bears, North American porcupine, moose, and gray wolves. We’re working hard to minimize impacts while providing the best possible experience for our visitors and the animals we love and care for. Learn more and view the current Canadian Wilds map here.
