Mountain Sky Guest Ranch is helping schools in Park and Gallatin Counties with funding to come to West Yellowstone, MT and take part in numerous programs. They provide transportation and lodging costs to schools that would otherwise be too far away.
The schools participate in our programs like the Junior Smokejumper Program and The Naturalist. The school children and the teachers learned about fire, fire ecology, clothing and tools, and did a Parachute Loft to see what it is like under a parachute with the Junior Smokejumper Program. The Naturalist allows children and the teachers to learn about the plants and animals of the Yellowstone Ecosystem.
We have many pictures from the different schools:
