Field Education

Out in Nature, into Science

Field Education

Teton Science Schools have offered quality educational programming in Grand Teton National Park since 1967. We use the wild lands of Yellowstone National Park, Bridger-Teton National Forest and the National Elk Refuge as our classroom. Our variety of residential and day programming provide place-based, experiential education for all ages all year long. Program themes range from fostering leadership skills to building awareness of sustainability issues. Our diverse curriculum imparts a deep understanding and appreciation for the unique natural history and ecology of the local area. Teton Science Schools’ model for experiential learning fosters hands-on/minds-on learning in the outdoors. Our professional staff is flexible and can adapt programs to meet the goals of your group.
