Teen EcoTravel

EcoTravel opportunities for Teens Few experiences can affect teens like international travel. Oakland Zoo has a history of inspiring teens with trips to exotic locations such as Borneo, Guatemala, Peru and Madagascar.

We are very excited to join Ecology Project International on this amazing adventure to the beautiful, biodiverse Yellowstone National Park. Over nine days, teens will experience the diversity of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, from its sagebrush grasslands to sand hills, from forested mountains to boiling hot, geothermal pools. After arriving in Bozeman, MT we will be participating in conservation and monitoring projects (sagebrush and wolves), while exploring geysers, mud pots, colored pools, a pristine alpine lake and of course all the wildlife!

Highlights of this trip will include:
  • Montana's Centennial Valley- one of the most remote, yet still road-accessible locations in the whole ecosystem. Here we will contribute to a conservation service project with The Nature Conservancy.

  • Yellowstone National Park- We'll see geysers and bison, participate in wolf observation, hike to an alpine lake, and so much more!

  • White Water Rafting- On our last day we will experience the Yellowstone River up close during an afternoon of whitewater rafting on its mild rapids.

Trip Dates: July 9-17 2016
