  • View and photograph wildlife through high-quality spotting scopes
  • Hear accounts of wolf pack dynamics and stories of individual wolves
  • Learn about Yellowstone's natural history, ecology, scientific studies, and conservation efforts

  • High-quality Swarovski spotting scopes and binoculars to view the action up-close
  • Morning snacks, coffee, tea, and hot chocolate, as well as a full lunch
