The Wild Lives of Yellowstone Country

The depth of our reverence for the wild lives we share the land with is vast. These majestic animals who call Montana home—bears, wolves, moose, elk, deer, bighorn sheep, antelope, badgers, otters and the largest concentration of bison in the U.S.—rely on the various natural habitats of Yellowstone Country to survive and thrive. This land, first and foremost, belongs to them.

Spring in the park (April through early June, to be exact) is the time to spot the newest residents of Yellowstone. Calving season means these babies are busy checking out their new digs, and visitors are likely to see them.

Bring your binoculars and your knowledge of wildlife safety and see for yourself. If you’re lucky, you may even spot the ever-elusive lynx or wolverine.
