Discovery Field Trips

Discovery field trip: butterflies

Middle schoolers enjoy activities outdoors with our Discovery Field Trips in the summer months.

Join other Wyoming middle school students on a great adventure throughout the Greater Yellowstone region. Wouldn’t you like to observe wildlife, camp in the forest, learn how to explore nature through art, and make new friends this summer? Participants become scientists, contemplate their role in the natural world, develop leadership skills, and learn to solve complex problems.

August 10 – 12: H-2-Oh! Discovery Field Trip

Water in the West is a critical resource. Learn all about aquatic ecology and management issues in the Bighorn Canyon as we paddle the waterways. We will explore, canoe, and camp along the shores of Bighorn Lake on this trip of a lifetime. Open to students ages 11 – 15. Advanced registration required. Fee: $80 per student, $70 per member (scholarships available).

This program is made possible through a grant from the R. Harold Burton Foundation, and the Wyoming Arts Council.
