About Yellowstone in Winter

January 10, 2015

January 14 – 19, 2016

Since 2006, the Museum has offered a winter trek to Yellowstone National Park for educators. Snow blankets the landscape, steam fills the air in the geyser basins and wildlife struggles for survival. Yellowstone in the winter is a truly unique experience.

Applications for January, 2016 are available now! To request an application, email Melissa Dowland at

Follow our journey through Yellowstone’s winter landscape by reading our blog posts and visiting our photo gallery.

      Hi Megan!
      Was thrilled to see that you are having the Yellowstone experience! I just saw the view of the Tetons that Melissa took from the plane! Savor each moment. Ginny Byrne

        Thanks for the photo credit but the picture of the Tetons was actually taken by Karen H. with Ina’s phone! A true team effort!

      Most of the photos in the gallery were taken by me (Melissa) or Mike Dunn who used to lead the trip with me before he retired last year. Thank you for the compliment!
