  • TSS AmeriCorps at a Glance

    Deciding what to do with my life is a question that rolls through my mind every day. Have I fulfilled my life dream yet? Have I landed my dream job? Have I narrowed down what I want to do? These questions make many of us jump in our seats and make our palms sweat. Who would ever truly be able to answer these?

  • September Grizzlies

    We're rolling into Hayden Valley after a satisfying morning of elk bugling in the misty sagebrush plains just outside of Moose. It was a thrilling experience, but that was eight hours ago. As we made our way across the central Yellowstone Plateau, we saw a lot of lodgepole pine trees, but not a single mammal. I can sense my Wildlife Expedition guests wondering when we’re going to get around to the wolves and/or bears part of our “Wolf and Bear Expedition.”

  • Seven in the Far North

    That it was ten o’clock on a Wednesday was irrelevant when we crested Guilbeau Pass. We were radiating holiday spirit on that day, because it was our 25th day walking through the Arctic, and because the tussocks that sometimes aggravated our ankles were looking quite festive covered in snow.

  • Fall in Coyote Canyon

    The past couple of weeks have brought a distinct shift in the season, as summer comes to a close and fall settles in. Those of us who live, learn, and work on the Jackson Campus have watched firsthand as the aspen trees lining the east side of the canyon change from green to gold.

  • Putting Place at the Center

    Place-Based Education (PBE) is at the core of Teton Science Schools’ programs and defines our approach to achieving our mission. TSS lies at the intersection of classroom education, field education, and educator development. All of our programs integrate learning with place to increase engagement, learning outcomes, and community involvement.

  • Celebration of Learning

    For TSS graduate students’ final assignment of the year, they are tasked with synthesizing all that they learned, experienced, and came to understand from the year into a final product. Some create written pieces and some create artistic pieces. As we celebrate the graduation of TSS’s 22nd graduate class, we’ll publish two of these culminating pieces on the blog this week. Today, we feature Sam Neirman’s poem, which he used to capture the feelings and experiences of this past year. He read the poem at a reception for all graduate students and their guests during Graduation Week.
