Murie Front Porch Conversations


In their time, Mardy and Olaus Murie's front porch was a favorite gathering place of scholars, scientists, school children and friends to discuss ideas on how to further wilderness protection efforts. In continuing with that tradition, each summer the Murie Ranch of Teton Science Schools invites community members and local experts to share insights from their work, encouraging dialogue surrounding key themes and topics with an audience of 40-50.

The theme for 2019 is Raising Conservation Leaders. These conversations still take place on the front porch at the Murie Ranch, and they are free and open to the public.

TNC's Trevor Bloom, a phenology scientist, will be speaking on August 21.
