Description

Join one of the very knowledgeable Grand Teton rangers on the back deck of the Jackson Lake Lodge who will be on hand with a spotting scope for your viewing pleasure. Ask the ranger any questions you have about the park or about whatever you're looking at through the spotting scope (hopefully it's a moose!).

All visitors are invited to this 1-hour program and it's offered daily starting at 9 am.

On the Road: Park at the Jackson Lake Lodge and make your way to the back deck.

Family Friendly: Kids like animals, right!? Well, where better to see (and maybe hear) them, than from one of the most beautiful vistas in the Park with a Park Ranger?
