Due to modified operations, the park is not offering scheduled ranger programs. When visiting, please check at the local visitor center or message boards to see if activities are being offered.


One of the best ways to experience a national park is participating in a ranger program. Yellowstone National Park offers a variety of ranger programs throughout the park and throughout the year.

 

Sample Schedules

Yellowstone's in-park ranger programs vary each season.

Summer

For the 2022 summer season, please check locally at visitor center bulletin boards for any activities that might pop up that day.

As an alternative, be sure to download the official free, official NPS app to help plan and enrich your trip to Yellowstone. Then, you will be able to use the app to learn more about the park's magnificent natural and cultural wonders, as well as virtually take a ranger with you by using the self-guided tours option.

Fall

For the 2022 fall season, please check locally.

Winter

For the 2022-2023 winter season, please check back.

Spring

The spring season is a transitional period for the park, so no ranger programs are scheduled during this time.
