Our Education Director will come to your school and talk with your students about the Sanctuary, the animals of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, and other related subjects. We have a series of classes ready to go (see below), with more in development. Our prepared courses can be tailored to fit your class, and we can work with you to prepare other courses around the resources we have available, including biofacts such as skulls, fur, feathers, track casts, cough pellets, nests, scat replicas, and more.

For younger children, a simple visit to talk about animal sanctuaries, rescue centers, and zoos can be educational and so much fun the kids will talk about it for weeks!

 
 In this class, students will learn the basics of taxonomy, understand the difference between the five major classifications of vertebrates, and explore the mammals that share our ecosystem with us.

 A healthy brain is just as important to us as a healthy body, and the same is true of animals. In this class, we talk about current research, lifetime learning, behavioral enrichment, aerobic exercise, socialization, and more.

 This is a companion class to the mammal and reptile classes. There aren’t a lot of amphibians in Montana and Wyoming, but the ones we have are fascinating!

 This class can follow  Classifying Yellowstone Mammals  or stand alone. Students will learn about reptiles in general, and then get specific about the ones that live in Montana. We also discuss identifying venomous snakes.
