Bringing your students to the Yellowstone Wildlife Sanctuary gives them an opportunity to see native wildlife up close, and we can do a lot to make the experience even more memorable.
During the tour we’ll provide age-appropriate messaging to the students about the different animal species and individuals and the importance of both physical and mental health to the animals’ well-being. Your students will learn about the greater Yellowstone ecosystem and how each of our animals fits in.
They’ll meet a wide variety of mammals, including bears, felines, canines, rodents, and the iconic American bison. We also have wading birds, a variety of birds of prey, and corvids.
At the end of the tour, they’ll understand the difference between a rehabilitation center, a wildlife sanctuary, a breeding facility, and a zoo.
If your class is in the middle of a unit, we’ll be happy to tailor the tour to what they’re currently studying.
When the tour is over, you can head right back, or stay for lunch in our wooded picnic area.
