Fall Wolf and Elk Discovery Package

To make your package reservation online, complete this form or call us at 307-344-7311.

Observe Elk and Wolves in the Wild

Team up with a Yellowstone Forever Field Educator to discover wolves and elk, Yellowstone’s marquee predator and prey species. The elk mating season, or rut, spans late summer and fall where we’ll take plenty of time to enjoy and discuss the dramatic displays of mating bulls. Wolves are more elusive in fall but sunrise wildlife watching trips will still give us a good chance of observing wolves in the wild. Other activities include short hikes in wolf and elk habitat that includes discussions on the behavior, ecology, and management of both species. View the itinerary.

Lodging & Learning programs are offered in partnership with Yellowstone Forever.
