Whether it’s part of a wolf pack, elk herd, swan flock, or human family, every creature is continually learning throughout their lifetime. In this class we will explore the northern range of Yellowstone learning about the value of teachers and life experience in the animal kingdom. We will focus on wolf families and the strategies the older adults use to teach their young how to stay healthy and safe in the wild. We will spend time in the field looking for wolves with four-week-old pups just starting to incorporate into the pack. We will also discuss other species whose elders teach the family members valuable lessons gained through years of experience, including many ungulates and birds living in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
