Cara McGary

Owner of In Our Nature Guiding Services

Aquatic Biology, M.S. Biology.  Before settling in Gardiner MT, she worked extensively in the forests of Redwood National Park, the outback of Western Australia, and the jungles of Papua New Guinea. When not guiding in Yellowstone, she can be found building on her cabin, hiking, or traveling to someplace where there are good tidepools or snorkeling.

Nancy Lewis

Before coming to Yellowstone, she was an English teacher and an Arizona Wilderness Steward, doing trail maintenance, eradicating invasive species, and reporting illegal use of wilderness areas. Now, she combines her experience in education with her love of the park to help lifelong learners look closely at nature. She takes her passion for the outdoors south for the winter, working as a naturalist guide in Arizona. Nancy speaks Chinese conversationally and Spanish fluently.
