Visitors will get a chance to see muskoxen, caribou and reindeer and their young calves at Saturday's open house from noon to 4 p.m.

Guides will give presentations about the animals and visitors will be able to take tractor-pulled hayride tours while learning more about the institute.

The station was established in 1979 and conducts research on ecology, physiology, nutrition, reproduction, growth and animal behavior.
