Catch the wildlife action with Yellowstone Forever—the official nonprofit partner of Yellowstone National Park!
Instructors: Institute Staff
Dates: Offered May 30 – August 31
Yellowstone Day Adventures offer a convenient, expert-led wildlife watching experience for visitors to the world’s first national park.
We’ll pick you up at dawn, when the wildlife action is at its peak, and head out to Yellowstone’s famed Lamar Valley. We’ll keep an eye out for the usual suspects including elk, pronghorn, and bison, as well as those charismatic carnivores—bears and wolves.
Along the way, you’ll enjoy in-depth, facilitated group discussions based on your interests as well as fascinating commentary on the behavior and ecology of Yellowstone’s wildlife. We’ll also enhance your experience with the use of state-of-the-art spotting scopes and the latest digiscoping technology, which allows you to capture what you’re seeing in the scope on your smartphone.
Tours operate Wednesdays and Fridays during peak summer season. Tours include early morning pickups in Gardiner, Montana, breakfast and hot beverages, expert instruction, all transportation, scopes and binoculars, and digiscoping equipment.
