Field Education
Sunday Jul 1, 2018 - Friday Jul 27, 2018

Tucked into the heart of Grand Teton National Park sits a cluster of cabins that make up the Murie Ranch. Purchased in 1945 by renowned conservationists Olaus and Adolf Murie and their wives, the ranch would become arguably, the birthplace of the 20th-century conservation movement. Stay at the historic Murie Ranch for four weeks to learn about the ranch’s historical and environment importance, explore the wildlife and natural beauty of the surrounding area and help preserve that natural beauty through meaningful service and citizen science projects. You’ll have lots of independent time to explore and become a part of a rural western community. Learn about the issues faced by Jackson Hole and Grand Teton National Park throughout history and today.
