Social and intelligent, ravens and wolves are individually interesting, and even more fascinating when their worlds overlap. Through lectures, discussion, and field trips, you’ll become immersed in the world of ravens, observing their territorial behaviors as mated pairs defend their domains, and their social behavior as they gather at rich food sources.

You’ll watch ravens in the wild interacting with wolves and other animals, as well as among people in the gateway community of Gardiner to better understand how humans have fueled the growth of raven populations.

The program runs September 4-8 with optional complimentary lodging on September 3 in Bozeman.

Open your senses to one of the most ancient and vital bits of wisdom for our modern age–reentering the conversation of nature. Want to know that there is an eagle coming before it arrives, or that there is a wolf in the next valley despite being out of sight or earshot?

At the root of being happier, healthier, and more creative and empathetic people, is a vibrant relationship with the natural world and our fellow human beings–and it all starts with engaging the senses. You will learn to harness your own superhuman powers towards reentering our most natural surroundings with our more-than-human neighbors.

Time at the Lamar Valley Buffalo Ranch will be spent observing animals and learning what they have to teach us by decoding their vocalizations and behavior through the lenses of art, science, storytelling and indigenous lore. Whether you live in the city, the country, or somewhere in between, our time together will pay great dividends in the days and years to come when you travel the world, share with a child, or revel in the splendor of your own back yard.
