Important Note about 2021 Summer Ranger Programs
Due to modified park operations for the summer season, there will not be any scheduled ranger programs. When visiting the park, please check at the local visitor center or message boards to see what 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. Check the calendar for specific program details.
Yellowstone's in-park ranger programs vary each season.
The spring season is a transitional period for the park, so no ranger programs are scheduled during this time.
For the entire 2021 summer season, no scheduled ranger programs will be offered. When visiting the park this summer, please check locally at visitor center bulletin boards for any activities that might pop-up that day.
As an alternative, be sure to download one or both of two official free Yellowstone apps that can help plan and enrich your trip to Yellowstone–the NPS Yellowstone App and the National Park Service App (NPS App). 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.
For the entire 2021 fall season, no scheduled ranger programs will be offered.
For the 2021-2022 winter season, scheduled ranger programs are TBD.
