Wyoming Wildlife Wonders
A Naturalist Adventure!
Do you want to change the world? There is no better place to find this inspiration than in Yellowstone, our first national park, or at the base of the Tetons, where the Wilderness Act was envisioned. You will be surrounded by mountains, geysers, and North America’s most magnificent wildlife, while you improve your naturalist and leadership skills in one of the most breathtaking places on earth.
Work with and learn from field instructors at the Teton Science Schools and women leaders from the Rocky Mountains. Together, on foot and by canoe, explore Grand Teton National Park. Give back through science and service and explore careers that promote sustainable ecosystems. Camp in Yellowstone National Park on an expedition searching for wolves and bear. Develop leadership skills to influence change in your home and beyond.
Inspired by sister Girl Scouts, instructors, and women leaders, you will create an action project to bring home with you. After the completion of your action project, you will be able to share your new skills, knowledge, and experiences with your friends, family, council, and community.
