Sean Beckett, originally from Burlington, Vermont, developed a passion for nature at a young age through Boy Scouts of America. His time in the mountains and forests of New England fostered a great appreciation for ecosystem science and avian ecology. He received his bachelor’s degree in biology and environmental studies from Vassar College in upstate New York, and has been pursuing wildlife and ecology research ever since. Sean has published studies on owl migration in North America, and has participated in raptor, seabird, and song fieldwork in beautiful locations across the United States. He fell in love with the Tetons after working as a wildlife cartographer and field researcher for Teton Science Schools, and is excited to be sharing his stories and experiences with visitors of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
