Life thrives during Yellowstone winters
What You'll Learn
For your field research, you'll head out on snowshoes to track cougars and other mammal species - with luck, you'll be able to collect genetic samples for a cougar population study. Park researchers will share their work with you, and you'll travel to the eastern edge of the park to observe and learn about wolves from an expert.
Winter in the Park
Visiting Yellowstone in the winter is a unique opportunity - a chance to see the grandeur of the landscape without all the tourists. You'll encounter a solitude and beauty that's harder to find in the height of the summer. Bison and wolves are adapted to the sometimes-harsh climate, and you'll be able to observe them in action.
