Volunteers and Valley Californians

Volunteers and Valley Californians

During the week of July 1st, we had a volunteering family come to Yellowstone Nature Connection. Anyone 10 years of age and older can volunteer with their parents and/or grandparents. Our Historic Ranger House has five bedrooms and three bathrooms with a kitchen and living area that is there for our volunteers. The young kids 9 and under just get to have fun and take our programs. They give us two hours of work a day per person, they get to stay for free.

The other family came from California, in the valley but they have forests near them too. Coming to West Yellowstone and our signature The Junior Smokejumper Program® at Yellowstone Nature Connection was a great way to learn about the surrounding forests.

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, and jumping 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.
