Today's service project will involve some physical labor. Projects often require walking up to a mile to and from the work location over uneven terrain.
At the Teton Science Dining Lodge, enjoy a breakfast buffet offering rotating choices such an egg dish, breakfast meat, cereals (hot/cold), fresh fruit and beverages (juice, coffee, tea, water).
We will begin the day with a lecture on the natural history and biology of moose, as well as its place in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Next we will depart for our project for the day. The projects will develop as time draws closer to the program. Teton Science Schools works with a variety of non-profit and government agencies in Jackson Hole. Some possible organizations we might work with are Grand Teton National Park, The Nature Conservancy, Wyoming Untrapped, US Forest Service or the Jackson Hole Wildlife Foundation. We might also complete projects on Teton Science Schools' 880 acre property which serves as a migration path and home to many animals both large and small. Projects often include trail work, barbed wire fence removal, landscape and planting projects or invasive species removal.
Enjoy a packed field lunch in a scenic location. Participants will get to make their own lunch in the morning with sandwich and salad options.
We will continue today's project into the afternoon.
At Teton Science Schools.
This evening's lecture will introduce you to the issues facing wildlife in Jackson Hole and the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, including barriers to migration and development.
