YFI offers a variety of in-depth courses with subject area experts. Participants are immersed in classes in the field with experienced biologists, authors, artists, and naturalists. Programs are also offered in collaboration with in-park lodges where instructors engage participants with the park through classes on wolves, geysers, skiing, and more. Youth and college programs for middle-school through college-age groups are designed to engage the next generation of park stewards.
