Bears of Bearadise Ranch!! 


Bearadise Ranch, since 1926, brings to you their big, beautiful bruins in loving human care.

Promoting habitat preservation and conservation for all bear species, learn about bears and gain an appreciation for them up close and personal. Witness the love between man and bear with the Bears of Bearadise Ranch.

Bears have been a part of the Welde Family for over 70 years.  Their training methods are based on developing the natural and unique talents of each individual bear through patience, reward and understanding.  The relationship with each bear bust be one of mutual love and respect.

Through their shows they hope to educate the public as well as entertain them about the future of bears. Due to man’s steady destruction of the bears natural habitat, by the growth of human population, they hope through their shows they may remind people just how precious these magnificent beasts are to our planet Earth and by showing these beautiful animals up close this will keep them fresh in people’s minds to preserve, protect and conserve our wildlife.

Make sure you catch Bearadise Ranch! It’s education, conservation awareness and family entertainment all rolled into one.
