Welcome to Spring into Yellowstone!!

See the magnificent birds, wildlife, and natural history of northwest Wyoming's  Greater Yellowstone Region through the eyes of top scientists, birders, and photographers.  Join us this May for the  second annual Spring into Yellowstone Birding and Wildlife Festival!

 

WHAT'S NEW

LUKE SEITZ RETURNS FOR 2014 FESTIVAL!

Those lucky enough to meet  Luke at last year's festival will not soon forget his infectious enthusiasm and passion for all-things birds. At just 20 years old, Luke Seitz has seen more birds --2,100 by last count -- than many birders three times his age. In 2011, he was the youngest participant to win the esteemed World Series of Birding, an event he's participated in seven times (and making his eighth appearance just before Spring into Yellowstone!).

 

And if that weren't enough, Luke is an award-winning and published artist and photographer.

 

Join Luke on Thursday and Friday for the following trips: Birds & Rare Plants of the Swamp Lake Special Botanical Area, Field Sketching Waterfowl & Shorebirds  and LeHardy Rapids & Yellowstone Lake at Yellowstone National Park.

FEATURED TRIPS

SHOSHONE RIVER FLOAT

Explore the river like you never have before! Interact with a natural resource that traverses right through the heart of Cody.  Participants will be lead on a fully guided Shoshone River float trip that will include some rapids, splashes, and thrills.  The trip's goal is to view wildlife, and provide insight about inter-agency efforts to sustain a healthy river corridor that is a vital resource for the Bighorn Basin.  On the trip there will be various wildlife viewing opportunities to see waterfowl, deer, trout, osprey, and eagles. The float trip represents a collaboration between The Hatch Fly Shop and Guide Service and the Bureau of Land Management.
