Summer Day Hiking
August 1 - 4
Sam Archibald, M.E.M.
Cultural History, Hiking, Natural History, Wildlife
Join us for three days hiking in the wilds of Yellowstone! Along the trail, we will provide in-depth knowledge and experience about all aspects of the park, from wildlife to geology to history. We welcome participants to share their stories as well! The goal of this course is to introduce you to the diversity of the Yellowstone landscape and the complex issues confronting the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Please bring Yellowstone-related questions, thoughts, and comments for opening discussions, and remember—Yellowstone is one of thousands of wild places in our country alone! Start thinking about how what you know from your backyard wilderness applies here…and vice versa. The natural world is endlessly interconnected, and we’ll share insights on that too!
