Description

This ranger-led spring program does exactly what you think it might - leads visitors on an early morning excursion to watch the extraordinary grouse mating rituals.

This program is offered on specific weekends each year. Reservations are required, please call (307) 739-3399 for information and reservation requests. Participants will gather at the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center at 5:30 am where they will meet the ranger. Dress warmly, you'll be outside for approximately and hour.

Short Walk: Park at the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center parking lot.

Family Friendly: Kids will love the adventure of trying to first find the grouse, then, once the birds are found, they'll love watching them strut their stuff.
