Our sunset expedition, led by Kimber was a wonderful experience. We had house guests and wanted them to experience the views and wildlife of the area. Kimber knew just where to take us and we saw bison (they are placid beasts and will let you get close for photos), antelope, and a large racked elk guarding his harem from other... More

Four of us took a sunrise safari with the inimitable Jessie Stirling in early September, and we couldn't have had a better time. We saw 5 (or, as we later decided because of the calf, 4.5) moose within the first hour, and went on to spend the next several hours with pronghorn and bison on Antelope Flats. Jessie's wealth of...

A memorable trip that delivered everything we hoped for. Jean has an intimate knowledge of the wildlife and history of the Grand Teton area and kept us engaged for the whole Discovery trip. She enabled us to see moose, bison, pronghorn deer, bald eagles, cranes and other birds because she knew where to look. The van was ideal for photography... More

We feel Jean Lawrence is definitely a “keeper”. She has the eyes of an eagle and her knowledge of the flora and fauna was flawless. We were her only clients on the September 10, 2014 Discovery Expedition trip (Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks) which turned out to be an unexpected blessing. She is personable and, in our opinion, went... More

"Keeper" and "Beyond the job description" are wonderful attributes. Jean is a true professional naturalist and scientist. Jean has a passion for wild things in wild places. Jean's experience as a field biologist in Grand Teton and beyond make her keen eyed and eager to share the splendors of nature. We are proud of Jean and the program she provided... More

Outstanding! We are pleased to inspire and educate the young naturalists of the world. Sean is a passionate naturalist and very skilled at engaging all ages. Often, adults are easier to explain complex ecological principles to. However, sometimes getting back to the basics allows everybody to understand the beauty of the natural world.

I booked our four hour tour with Jared earlier this year. He was a delight to work with. I was debating between the sunrise or sunset tour, but the sunset ended up working better for our schedule and I was assured that both would be fine for viewing wildlife. Our guide, Jessie, arrived at our hotel promptly at 4pm. She... More

What a day we had traveling with Sarah, our guide, through Yellowstone and Teton National Park! Sarah was so excited to share with us the wildlife and the history of these parks.

On Sept. 5th my sister and I took the wildlife sunrise tour with biologist Dawson Smith. It exceeded all our expectations. While Dawson's a trained biologist, he's also a geologist, anthropologist, agronomist and an historian! We thoroughly enjoyed seeing the Grand Tetons with him.
