Embracing nature with Teton Science Schools
With a focus on science, stewardship and sustainability, Teton Science Schools have been a vital resource for Jackson Hole's community, teaching youth and adults about their local ecosystem through a place-based curriculum. Using a philosophy encouraged by founder Ted Major in the 1960s, this non-profit organization teaches students about nature through field education, essentially getting kids out into the natural world which they are studying. This mission to impart a sense of place to each student has been the cornerstone of Teton Science Schools' legacy.
Here at Jackson Hole Marketplace, we seek to support our local non-profits whenever possible. When you purchase Teton Science Schools merchandise from our web store, 90 cents of every dollar goes directly to this valuable organization. Teton Science Schools' unique educational programs have been a leading force in setting standards for science curriculum, as well as teaching local kiddos about the fascinating landscape just out their backdoor. Through their wildlife expeditions, community schools, graduate program and research institute, Teton Science Schools are shaping a positive future for this region and influencing how we interact with the place in which we live.
In support of this non-profit, you'll find classic logo hoodies, t-shirts and beanies available in our store, along with an educational and useful accessory, Teton Science Schools' "Mammal Tracks" and "Mammal Scat" bandanas. Take one on your next hike and prepare to see the natural world in a new and interesting way, by observing evidence of wildlife through track and scat identification. Life in the mountains is buzzing with activity, with creatures large and small coexisting in our local bioregion!
