Visit the historic Murie Ranch in Grand Teton National Park, former home of Olaus and Mardy Murie, and the birthplace of the modern wilderness movement. Olaus Murie was a famous naturalist who studied elk and other wildlife in Jackson in the early to mid-1900s. He went on to become the president of The Wilderness Society. His wife, Mardy, carried on his conservation ethic after he passed, and became known as "the grandmother of the conservation movement". Feel their story come alive as your explore the log cabin ranch where they lived and worked! After visiting the ranch, we'll head to the National Museum of Wildlife Art to explore the connection between wildlife, art, and conservation. Resting upon a dramatic cliff overlooking the National Elk Refuge, the National Museum of Wildlife Art serves to enrich and inspire the relationship between humans and nature. The museum contains more than 5,000 works of art, with exhibitions and programs that focus on wildlife of the world.
