Autumn Wildlife Watching
Natural History, Wildlife
Yellowstone’s northern range is known worldwide for its charismatic megafauna, such as grizzly bears, bison, wolves, and elk. You’ll spend three full days looking for these and other wild animals and learning how they fit into the park’s ecosystem.
Enjoy early morning and afternoon searches for wolves, bears, and songbirds, in addition to falcons and other birds of prey as they migrate back to the area. Keep a watchful eye on the ground, too, where you might spot small animals.
Note: No lodging is provided for this course. You can find more information on Gardiner-based lodging in the course letter below.
