On Wednesday, be part of a fun and educational all-day Field Trip
Participants will board a tour bus (~55 occupants/bus) at Snow King, for a day long tour through Jackson Hole and Grand Teton National Park. A lunch will be provided.
Participants should dress for weather, and bring cameras and binoculars.
The tour will be led by local biologists, who will explain local landscape features, history and ecology. Several stops will be made at scenic areas so that participants can observe the landscapes and wildlife. There will be ample stops for discussions and time for photographs. Those who wish to may follow in their own vehicles.
The route will run from Snow King north through Jackson Valley, past Blacktail Butte and Moose (a town, where Park Headquarters are, not the animal!), across Antelope Flats to Moran. Here the group will turn northwest and drive past The Oxbow, to Jackson Lake Lodge.
We’ll then turn south across Jackson Lake Dam, past Jenny Lake and have the Teton Range immediately to one side. We’ll stop at Moose to visit the National Park Museum before returning to Jackson, where we’ll stop again at the Interagency Visitor Center before returning to Snow King.
Assuming fair weather participants will see panoramic views of one of the most iconic landscapes in North America, and examples of most of the native ungulates, including bison, elk, moose, mule deer and prong-horned antelope.
Gala Banquet and Silent Auction
The conference wraps up with a Thursday evening Gala banquet (6:00-10:00 pm) complete with an amazing silent auction including hard-to-find swan and nature items.
