Explore the world of the Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep! Our central display, “Sheep Mountain,” is a 16-feet-tall diorama that recreates summer and winter habitats of bighorn sheep. This exhibit includes plants and other wildlife that share bighorn sheep habitats. Our dioramas include full-body taxidermy mounts of grizzly bears, marmots, wolves, golden eagles, mule deer, chipmunks, pikas, coyotes, mountain goats, bushy-tailed woodrats, mountain lions, and more!
Other Center exhibits include hands-on interactive displays that will engage, educate, and entertain visitors of all ages! Feel the weight of a mature bighorn ram’s horn; identify wildlife tracks, scat, and fur samples; and listen to Dubois locals telling their own bighorn sheep stories. Center exhibits also examine predator/prey relationships, explain the survival strategy of migration, and help visitors see the mountain environment through the eyes of a bighorn sheep. We occasionally have temporary special exhibits in the Ronald W. Ball Memorial Gallery as well as in the main exhibit hall.
