Campus & Area Overview
From the highway at the base of Vogel's Hill, all you can see is a road disappearing into the contour of the land. But beyond that lies so much more: The Jackson Campus of Teton Science Schools is busy servicing the educational needs of school children, teachers-in-learning and students of nature young and old, while maintaining and enhancing conservation easements on all but two percent of nearly 900 acres.
Carefully integrated into the landscape, two residential lodges, five educational buildings, a dining hall, maintenance building and welcome center were designed from a green perspective, using high performance materials with low-level organic compounds and using minimal resources. Natural lighting and innovation in space design have resulted in a learning environment in which students thrive. And since Teton Science Schools depends upon wildlife to fulfill its teaching mission, the entire site was prepared to avoid impact on established wildlife migration paths.
