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.
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 a chuckwagon 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.


Highlights

• 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.
