Solar Observatory

Big Bear Solar Observatory specializes in high resolution, high frame rate observations of the Sun in both the visible and near-infrared light. Big Bear Solar Observatory is well-known for its observations and research of solar magnetic fields, flares, solar oscillations, and as one of the Global Oscillation Network Group network sites.

Big Bear Alpine Zoo

The Big Bear Alpine Zoo is a rehabilitation facility offering injured, orphaned and imprinted wild animals a safe haven, temporarily while they heal, or permanently, as they are unable to survive on their own. 90% of all the animals brought to the zoo for rehabilitation are successfully released back into their native environment. Those that remain at the zoo on exhibit are either too injured or have been imprinted by humans and cannot be released back into the wild to care for themselves.
