Road Scholar
Program #15966RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderately Challenging
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
On invigorating, comfortably paced nature walks in Yellowstone National Park, a naturalist leads you to favorite destinations and less-visited but no-less-spectacular corners of the park. Active days present countless opportunities for hands-on learning and interpretation in the field. Supporting lectures in the classroom consider predator-prey dynamics, diverse ecosystems and park-management issues. Learn the ethics of wildlife viewing and how to use binoculars.


Highlights

• Enjoy opportunities to investigate geyser basin, waterfall, riparian, canyon and mountain environments.
• See newborn animals and identify spring wildflowers when wildlife is more active and park visitors are few.
• Delve into the park’s human and natural history, geology and the role of fire in the Yellowstone Ecosystem.

Activity Notes

Walking up to 3.5 miles a day on varied, sometimes uneven terrain; some stairs. Elevations of 5,260-8,850 feet.

Coordinated by University of Montana Western.
