West Yellowstone Ambassadors

A group of young adults came to learn about Smokejumping. Thankfully, we had Jim Kitchen, our President of the Board, and former smokejumper, teach them the tools, clothing, gear, and jumping out of a plane. They were able to take in all parts of the program and we decided to make them the West Yellowstone Ambassadors of our Junior Smokejumper Program®!

They came prepared for learning about fire, fire ecology, and they jumped out of our mock plane. Here are the pictures of the group:

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


We loved having our Ambassadors come to Yellowstone Nature Connection for a fun educational experience. Thanks too to Jim, for volunteering his time and knowledge to these students.

We had tons of fun with them and we hope to see them again soon!
