The Clever Canadians Came to Yellowstone Nature Connection

How Families Use Educational Fun Programs

This family came all the way from Eastern Canada, traveling and touring many national parks on their way to Yellowstone. They found us from the West Yellowstone Chamber of Commerce website, and wanted to check out our program. They also had been seeing evidence of fires along their route, which made learning about fires even more interesting.

They 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 and Dad tried out the pull up bars.

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!
