Kids Have Fun Learning at Yellowstone's Wildlife Olympics
A wolf can eat 20 pounds of food in one sitting. A pronghorn antelope can sprint 25 yards in under one second, and a grizzly bear can smell a carcass from two miles away!
Kids and their families participate along with a park ranger in 12 activities, and have fun learning about Yellowstone’s wildlife. Activities include leaping like a snowshoe hare, jumping like a mountain lion, holding one’s breath like a beaver, not blinking like an owl, and standing on one leg like a great blue heron.
2011: The 20 scheduled events began June 7 and will run from noon to 3 p.m. on Tuesdays and Fridays at alternating locations through August 12.
