Yellowstone!

Glenn Olsen

Not the Paramount Network drama series but the authentic Yellowstone National Park - the world’s first national park - will be our topic for discovery. Perhaps Yellowstone is best known for the geyser “Old Faithful” which is just one of more than 500 in the park. Remarkably, Yellowstone protects more than 10,000 hydrothermal features and this is the greatest concentration of geysers, hot springs, mudpots, and steam vents in the world!! With 2.2 million acres of wilderness there is a lot to explore in this almost untouched, natural ecosystem. With a large variety of habitats, Yellowstone is home to the largest concentration of mammals in the lower 48 states and nearly 300 species of birds.

In this class we will explore the history of Yellowstone, an overview of this unique ecosystem, as well as key animals and plants to be seen and enjoyed. We will discuss the amazing features listed above and the seasonal activities that are available to experience. Trip planning suggestions, activities, and lodging will be discussed.

This class will be held in-person at WIH and simulcast via Zoom
