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 in these summer field trips. 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.

Check back here in the late spring to learn about summer 2017 field trips.
