A Class in Our Jungle Retreat
These programs focus on raising awareness of human-wildlife interactions and how we can make decisions to help prevent wildlife from needing lifelong sanctuary.
ANIMAL CARE: These programs discuss individual animal needs and the importance of maintaining the overall wellness of our residents at the Sanctuary.
An Enriching Opportunity- Students learn several adaptations of wildlife at the Sanctuary, and why it’s important to provide mental and physical stimulation in their enclosures. They will be challenged with designing an enclosure for a resident of their choice. This program is best facilitated at the Sanctuary following a guided tour.
Animal Castle- If you could design your own castle, what would you include? In this program, students learn how animals are adapted for their environment and have different habitat needs, introduced through Primp the Porcupine, a story written by our education staff. Students will be able to choose a Sanctuary resident, observe, and draw or model a new “animal castle” to fit its needs. This program is best facilitated at the Sanctuary following a guided tour.
ECOSYSTEMS & CONSERVATION: Through hands-on discovery students explore other components of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
Stream Studies- Plant to get a little wet and muddy as students explore a freshwater ecosystem. We will discuss the importance of water conservation, how the water cycle is not a closed loop, and how scientists use wildlife as indicators of healthy streams. Seasonal and fit for all ages.
Partnerships in the Field- Sometimes we are able to partner with local agencies to take your students into the field. This relies on collaboration. If you are interested in getting your students into the field for active lessons, we would love to coordinate an opportunity.
Citizen Science- There are a variety of citizen science projects that will get your students involved in real scientific research that can be done either in your schoolyard or here at the Sanctuary. All ages.
Field Trip Offerings
Larger groups that select one or more programming units, maybe broken down into smaller groups that will rotate through the programs. For example. a group of 100 students arriving for a guided trail will likely be divided into 2 groups. While one group is out on the trail with their guides, the other group is welcome to explore on their own until time for their guided trail.
