The National Bighorn Sheep Interpretive Association is dedicated to educating the public about the habitat and conservation needs of the Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep and to encouraging the active stewardship of wildlife and wildlands.
Stepping into the National Bighorn Sheep Center is like stepping into the world of the Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep. Lifesize dioramas show the clash of the rams during the rutting season, the high mountain cliffs where the lambs are born, the predators and other creatures that share the mountain heights with the bighorns. Interactive and hands-on exhibits allow visitors to experience the way a bighorn sees, feels, climbs, eats, and survivies. The story of the interaction between humans and wild sheep in the Wind River Mountains goes back thousands of years and is depicited at the Center.
Visitors will see the Grand Slam of wild sheep and quality mounts of the animals that share the bighorns home--the mountain lion,grizzly, golden eagle, marmot, coyote, magpie and other birds.
The National Bighorn Sheep Interpretive Association shares with the public the on going research and management projects of the Whiskey Mountain Bighorn Sheep Technical Committee. The Committee is an interagency management team responsible for the Whiskey Mountain herd of bighorn sheep which represents the largest wintering concentration of bighorns in North America. The periodic "Biologists' Journal" is publish by the Interpertive Association and reports the latest projects and findings.
The National Bighorn Sheep Interpretive Center is located on the west side of Dubois on US Highway 26/287, 56 miles from Grant Teton National Park and 81 miles from the south entrance to Yellowstone National Park.
