The Bridger-Teton National Forest Jackson Ranger District is committed to helping students know as much as possible about their public lands. The Walk With a Ranger program is a diverse, educational service that promotes understanding and involvement on our public lands. Wilderness rangers provide local students an overview of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem and the Bridger-Teton’s role in this ecosystem. Walking with a ranger provides a closer look at the student’s backyard and how to interact with it in accordance with leave no trace guidelines.Louie Shahan - Gros Ventre Wilderness Ranger
