Grand Teton and Yellowstone Wildlife Safari
September 25 – October 2, 2022
In a land built on fire, earthquakes, and other extreme geological forces, the sheer beauty of Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks is simply unmatched. Their prolific wildlife and geothermal activity are the ideal setting for capturing iconic images and learning about our national treasures. Learn about the unique geological and ecological history that continues to shape this region, how it came into existence, and about the plants and animals that call this wilderness home.

Our expert biologist and wildlife guide takes you away from crowded boardwalks to more remote places in search of elusive species of birds and predators like wolves and bears. Gain insight on conservation during talks at local organizations such as Teton Science School and Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge.
