Travelling to the Tetons

“Twelve high schoolers spending seven days in the wilderness without their cell phones? We will see how this goes!” I thought as we boarded the plane on our way to Wyoming. This adventure is a highlight of our two-year High School Outdoor Leadership internship that introduces teens to environmental careers and gives them solid employment experience they can put on college applications.

Does Your Child Want to be a Nature Ranger?

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a NATURE RANGER! Do you know a child, 5 years or older, who would like to be part of our new Nature Ranger after school program at the Urban Ecology Center?

Forests are filled with mysterious and beautiful happenings: the flickering light of fireflies in summer nights, the almost instantaneous blooming of flowers on a spring morning, the dance of colored leaves falling in autumn, and snow-covered branches in the winter. We have a mystery to solve at the Urban Ecology Center too and we need your family's help solving it!
