Visitors to the BC Wildlife Park have an unlikely benefactor to thank for the park's acres of sagebrush-coated hills and Ponderosa Pine-lined trails: Molson's Breweries. When the Greater Kamloops Zoological Society set out in search of suitable land for zoological facilities in 1966, Molson's donated 106 acres of their hop fields. Today, the natural landscape blends seamlessly from wilderness to animal enclosures that host more than 60 native and non-native species and offer visitors a chance to learn more about the region. Some dwellings host the largest mammals of the mountains—grizzly bears, cougars, and grey wolves included—while others contain spiders, snakes, and birds of prey. Visitors also find a few nods to the farm life in the big red barn known as Home Hardware Corral. Inside, miniature goats, pot-bellied pigs, and other cuddly farm dwellers frolic, giving children a gleeful glimpse into the life of a farmer.
The park's staff offer more than just an opportunity to observe animals, though. They supervise up-close encounters with some of their wildlife at special request, allowing guests the chance to meet and pose for pictures with birds and reptiles. In warmer months, they open up their splash park playground to kids of all ages. The staff also puts on an annual falconry show each summer in the Highland Valley Copper Amphitheatre, working with golden eagles, burrowing owls, and a massive turkey vulture. Visitors can also explore the grounds aboard the Wildlife Express Miniature Train, riding the miniature rails past some of the park's more stunning vistas.
