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.

This program combines teamwork and a love of nature in beautiful settings to help create better migration corridors. We worked in cold temps with barbed wired and with snow flying but the warmth of friendship and good food kept us going! Program highlights included side trips to Murie Ranch and the National Wildlife Museum. Even wildlife cooperated as we were able to stop and observe moose, elk, pronghorns, and mountain sheep en route to our varied activities.

If you want to work outdoors, feel like you are a "kid" again, be lovingly cared for during a week of "giving-back" to the environment, this is definitely the program for you!
