My family took our children ranging in ages from 3 to 10 on the Elk Refuge tour and all were thoroughly engaged and enlightened by Sara E., a true nature enthusiast and self-professed "nature geek." We saw so much wildlife during our half day excursion: moose, coyotes, eagles, and big horned sheep to name a few of the many species.... More

My husband and I went to Jackson Hole for the skiing. We needed a break one day, and were told that the wildlife tour was worthwhile. We booked a day tour and were pleasantly surprised. We were greeted by Sarah in the morning. She arrived with hot chocolate and snacks and a wonderful van to take us out. Sarah was... More

We had two days in Jackson. A friend of mine who comes to the Tetons every summer recommended this school and its tours (her exact words were "Don't bother with any other tour"), and I am so glad we listened to her. We booked a sunset expedition, and it was just fantastic. We saw so many animals and so much... More

I realize most people go to Jackson Hole in winter to ski/snowboard...and my husband is among them. I, however, wanted to find other things to do while on vacation and booked a Sunrise Wildlife expedition with Teton Science Schools. Excellent decision.

I expected the Houston Zoo would locate a good guide for a week-long trip to Yellowstone in winter... I was wrong, they located a truly excellent one. Paul's knowledge of and deep love for the animals and environment of the Grand Tetons/ Yellowstone made for a wonderful trip. Also, with temperatures dropping to 55 below zero, he made sure we...
