Summer Wildlife & Natural History Safaris
The Best of Yellowstone
Cost: $295 per person * Minimum of 3 people $220 per child (12 and under)
This extraordinary trip will focus on the dramatic qualities that influenced the decision to make Yellowstone the world's first national park. These qualities include the park's spectacular wildlife, the most famous geysers in the world and never-ending scenery. A Yellowstone trip will always vary to account for wildlife sightings and group interests, but stops typically include Old Faithful, the colorful waterfalls of Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone and the wildlife of Hayden Valley. Lunch is included and is often taken near Old Faithful. Trips to Yellowstone depart three times per week (Sun., Tues., Fri.) at 7:00 am and generally return between 5:00 and 7:00 pm. Private Yellowstone trips available.
The Best of Grand Teton National Park
Cost: $195 per person / $160 per child (12 and under)
If our Safaris sound too early or too late in the day, this trip is for you. This is our most thorough tour of Grand Teton National Park and leaves at the respectable time of 9:00 am. You will visit the most dramatic locations within the park as well as sites where most visitors never discover. This trip includes a field lunch, high-quality optics, park fees, and knowledgeable guide. Trips are offered every Wednesday.
Cost: $10 per person, plus 10% gratuity
The Spring Creek Ranch Naturalist Department is teaming up with Wyoming Stargazing’s Dr. Samuel Singer and his collection of large telescopes for an extraordinary night of exploring the heavens!
The dark skies at Spring Creek Ranch provide an ideal location to view galaxies, star clusters, planets, and even the arms of our own Milky Way Galaxy. If you’re lucky you’ll also see shooting stars, sun spires, and the northern lights. Dr. Singer will answer all of your questions concerning constellations, star formation, galaxy collisions, the origin of our universe, and more. He will also introduce you to the latest astronomy software available on your smartphone so you can continue exploring the night sky on your own. We’re looking forward to seeing you out there. Clear Skies!
Astronomy Nights are offered every Monday and Thursday at 9:30 pm.
