Solar Festival at Yellowstone Nature Connection

Solar Festival

The Great American Solar Eclipse is coming to West Yellowstone!

Yellowstone Nature Connection promotes science and fun in one very special event, a solar eclipse on our campus! While we are not in the path of totality, we are pretty close, at 98.7%! So why not come out and celebrate Earth’s favorite star, our Sun.

What To Do With Your Family

Yellowstone Nature Connection enjoys unlocking family adventures! We created a fabulous program and these families reserved months in advance. They came together for a family reunion, with cousins learning and playing together.

Why Family Interactions Make Sense

Families from AZ, CA, & FL

Different Families Come Together

Yellowstone Nature Connection enjoys having its members come to West Yellowstone. As members, they can volunteer and stay in our Ranger house. This week our members volunteered at a program, and one of them was a former smokejumper! He told about the gear and was our jump master for the program.

Which Super Group of Girl Scouts?

Logan UT Girl Scouts

Logan, Utah’s Girl Scouts from Ages 6-18

Visiting from Utah (we think to escape the heat…Little did they know it was warm up here too) came a super group of Girl Scouts. They ranged in age from six to 18! It was a very hot day, the hottest we have had in a long time here at West Yellowstone, yet everyone enjoyed the program. We even got a couple of the adults to do some pull-ups!
