Day 1

Welcome to Spring Creek Ranch, Jackson’s premier rustic western elegant resort!

Day 2

Wake up to a delicious breakfast! Our Resident Naturalist will pick you up at your room at 8:00am for a full day of wildlife viewing and Grand Teton National Park exploration. With our high end optical equipment our Naturalists will help you spot the abundance of wildlife that call Jackson Hole home. Baby animals are starting to pop up all over the valley in the spring! Lunch, snacks, beverages, and gratuity are all included.

 

Day 3

After a leisurely breakfast, you will meet our Naturalist at their cabin at 10:00am and start out on a 2 mile nature hike. Enjoy stunning views and spectacular wildflowers. The hike is easy walking and takes about 1.5 to 2 hours. Your guide will bring binoculars and field guides as you learn about the plants and animals that inhabit the wildlife sanctuary on which Spring Creek Ranch is located.
This evening meet at the Naturalist Cabin once again at 9:00pm to meet with Astronomer Samuel Singer for an hour under the stars. Spring Creek Ranch’s location above the lights of Jackson is an ideal place for stargazing and learning a few of the spring constellations.
