From Maryland to Missouri to Montana

Families Come to West Yellowstone for Fun Programs!

A family visiting West Yellowstone came from Ranger Sasha’s hometown in Maryland and live right near where he grew up! Such a small world when you think about it…And the second family had a Junior Smokejumper who came to our program twice before…We think he might become a smokejumper when he grows up!

Everyone came to learn about smokejumpers, and had fun with the match-stick forest experiments. They learned about fire, fire ecology, clothing and tools of a smokejumper.

The kids experienced wearing a jumpsuit as they got their instructions from our Jump Master. They lined up and jumped out of our mock plane.

The Junior Smokejumper Program® was great for all!  Here are the pictures of everyone.

Thank you for coming and enjoying the program. To download the pictures, click on a picture and then right-click to download the picture.


A beautiful day, great for some exercise and some learning. Thank you for coming!

If you could please give us a review on Facebook: we would really appreciate it!
