For Educators


The National Elk Refuge frequently offers lessons to groups of students. Whether they're young children or adult learners, the public use staff looks forward to enhancing a visit to the refuge with educational programming.

The National Elk Refuge offers multiple educational opportunities for students of all ages, from traditional classrooms to adult learners. We look forward to the opportunity to work with all age groups to offer free programs focusing on cultural and natural resources.

Our School Programs page describes opportunities geared towards youth programs for both summer and winter presentations. This includes traditional Kindergarten through 12th grade classrooms, summer camps, and other educational groups. These lessons can be tailored to meeting specific curriculum needs and can serve as either a pre- or post-program in conjunction with a refuge visit or as a stand-alone presentation.

We can also accommodate adult learner groups such as Elderhostel or Road Scholar. Whether adult groups are here on a bus tour, visiting as part of an organized tour for a specific learning group, or on a recreational tour passing through the area, we can offer programs ranging from talks on specific topics such as early Jackson Hole history and wildlife ecology. As with school programs, these opportunities are available year-round and can be offered either at the National Elk Refuge or nearby off-site locations.
