Winter in Yellowstone is a dynamic and thrilling season. Bison crowd around thermal pools while the park's predators prepare their own winter strategies. You and your students will go beyond what most park visitors see by working with park researchers to collect data in the field and spend time in the iconic Lamar Valley for a day of wolf observation. There is an option to earn 3 undergraduate credits through the University of Montana (separate registration process and tuition fees apply).
On all of EPI’s student travel programs, students participate in real-life, ongoing wildlife conservation projects with experts in their field. Lessons and activities are rooted in the NGSS standards and are designed to spark students’ passion for environmental science and conservation. It’s time to discover a student travel program like no other, where exploration and science go hand-in-hand!

Chris Geremia is a senior bison biologist for Yellowstone National Park. He began his career in Yellowstone nearly twenty years ago as a field technician, a period of "wandering around the park" that he describes as some of the "greatest years" of his life. Geremia now holds a PhD in Ecology and is the principal investigator on Yellowstone's Home on the Range study. The arc of his career, his deeply felt connection with the landscape and its inhabitants, and his eagerness to talk with students has made him an incredible partner for EPI and an inspiration to many.
