Summary
Millions of visitors have seen Yellowstone's bubbling mud pots and clockwork geysers, but 90 percent of the national park's 2 million acres are barely touched, holding far more than what most people see. It's a giant swath of terrain-much of it remote, some of it dangerous-but all of it commands awe and respect. Wolves, bison, and bears roam freely; an incredible number of waterfalls have been documented in recent years; and many more life-changing encounters with the natural world await the intrepid explorer. This program takes biology and earth science students beyond the tourist spots to see a hidden, astonishingly rich Yellowstone.
