Students see how large an adult grizzly track can be.The Bridger-Teton National Forest is committed to helping the publics know as much as possible about their public lands. That is what led to the creation of the Bridger-Teton Naturalist Program.

The Naturalist program is a diverse, educational service that promotes understanding and involvement on our public lands. Naturalists provide visitors to the national forest with an overview of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem and the Bridger-Teton’s role in this ecosystem. Naturalists also work with schools in order to provide a closer look at the student’s backyard. Naturalists give programs from horseback, in classrooms, hiking down trails or in a cozy ranch lodge. Program topics have ranged from bear identification and safety, to wildflower walks to geology tours or a variety of custom programs.

Resorts, schools, youth groups, clubs, hotels or any other organization that would like to sign up to have a Naturalist for one or a series of summer long programs can contact the  Bridger – Teton National Forest Supervisor’s Office for more information.
