Located inside Grand Teton National Park, the Kelly Campus is the first home of Teton Science Schools. From here one may enjoy views extending from the foot of the Gros Ventre Mountains through the sage flats of Jackson Hole and across the Snake River to the rising of the majestic Teton Range. This campus houses the Murie Museum, where ecological work centers on field science experiences in a wilderness setting. This campus is also home to our Graduate Program and other residential educational programs. The campus is comprised of rustic log buildings preserved in an historic western setting. Some were built during the dude ranching days, while others have been moved from other historic locations in Jackson Hole.
