At a Glance

The Shiras, or Wyoming moose, is a fascinating mammal of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Work to improve and restore the habitat of moose and other local wildlife species, helping them to survive and thrive. Spend half the week in Jackson Hole and the other half of the week on a journey to Daniel, Wyo., where an authentic, 80,000-acre cattle ranch has become a haven for moose and other wildlife displaced by drilling for natural gas. Observe wildlife, learn about wildlife conservation issues and play a role in habitat restoration.

Along the Ramparts of the Tetons: The Saga of Jackson Hole, Wyoming
by Robert E. Betts
The magnificent valley of Jackson Hole at the base of the soaring Teton Range has long been a stage on which a remarkable series of events has been acted out by an equally remarkable cast of characters. This is that story, told with a verve and excitement which brings the past alive.
Wapiti Wilderness
by Olaus and Margaret Murie
Margaret and Olaus Murie made their home in the Tetons for over thirty-seven years. During this time, Olaus Murie conducted studies of the American elk, the wapiti, and both he and Mardy worked tirelessly for conservation efforts and the preservation of wilderness. Wapiti Wilderness tells the story of their adventurous life raising children while conducting research in the Tetons. This book is available at the Teton Science Schools gift shop.

From the highway at the base of Vogel's Hill, all you can see is a road disappearing into the contour of the land. But beyond that lies so much more: The Jackson Campus of Teton Science Schools is busy servicing the educational needs of school children, teachers-in-learning and students of nature young and old, while maintaining and enhancing conservation easements on all but two percent of nearly 900 acres. Carefully integrated into the landscape are two residential lodges, five educational buildings, dining hall, maintenance building and welcome center. Built in 2004, all buildings were designed from a green perspective, using high-performance materials with low-level organic compounds and using minimal resources. Natural lighting and innovation in space design have resulted in an environment that benefits all who live, work and visit here. Residential lodges are dormitory-style, clean, and basic. Each room has enough beds to sleep four or five people, including bunk beds in the rooms, though top bunks are only used for youth. Rooms contain a reading lamp, small table and chair, and private bathroom. All of the buildings have free wifi access; cell phone service is limited.
