The Murie Center of Teton Science Schools is located on the Murie Ranch within Grand Teton National Park. The Ranch is where conservationists Olaus Murie, his wife Margaret (Mardy), scientist Adolph Murie and his wife Louise lived as they conducted landmark research in wildlife management and biological science. It was here, on this unassuming site, that the Wilderness Act and the modern conservation movement were born. The Murie Ranch was designated a National Historic Landmark on February 21, 2006 in recognition of their contributions.
Teton Science Schools now operates educational programs at The Murie Ranch that explore the science, arts and history of Jackson Hole and the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
