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.
Join active lifelong learners from around the country as you converge on picturesque Jackson Hole, Wyo., for an outdoor educational adventure unlike any other. The Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem is the stage for hands-on learning under first-class educators from the Teton Science Schools as they bring their expert knowledge to inspiring, small-group encounters in America’s most revered wildernesses. Hikes, wildlife observation, rafting and an old west cookout dinner are just a few of the memorable events in store for you and other lifelong learners who share your love of the great outdoors, as well as sumptuous meals, access to local museums and a performance by a local musician.


• Take a scenic float trip down the Snake River in Grand Teton National Park and explore the unique geologic features of Yellowstone National Park.
• Ride the aerial tram to the top of Rendezvous Mountain for a morning of high-elevation hiking and exploration of the unique plants and animals found only in the alpine ecosystem.
• Become familiar with the various challenges that face land and wildlife managers in and around Jackson Hole and do your part for the preservation of the parks through a morning service project.

Program Notes

This program has been limited to 120 participants, but the group will be divided into smaller groups for most activities. Each group will do all of the activities listed on the daily schedule, but they will occur in a different order for each group. As such, the days that participants do each activity will vary, as will the dates of the free evenings.

Activity Notes

For field days, participants will be in small groups with a maximum of 15 including the group leader. Evening programs bring the entire group together. Hiking up to six miles over uneven terrain in groups split according to desired intensity. Paddling a canoe for 1-2 hours. Lodgings at 6,200 feet. Activity elevations up to 10,450 feet.

Coordinated by Teton Science Schools.
