Outdoor Adventures in Torrey Valley
The Whiskey Basin Wildlife Habitat Management Area is the winter habitat of our Whiskey Mountain Bighorn Sheep herd.
Guided tours out to the field greatly add to the experience of a Sheep Center visit. Students will learn about bighorn sheep habitat, biology, and history of the area. Customized tours allow students to explore more specific content and topics like:
- petroglyphs and history
Tours are $75 for groups of 30 or less. Larger groups need to coordinate with the Outreach Coordinator for availability.
School groups are responsible for their own transportation to/from site.
Virtual Tours, Traveling Education Trunks and Classroom Presentations.
School groups outside the Dubois area can still have an engaging and memorable learning experience with our wildlife and wild lands.
Virtual Tours and Traveling Education Trunks provide a hands-on, up-close look at the life and lifestyles of bighorn sheep. Trunks can be shipped anywhere in the contiguous United States. Shipping costs are covered by generous donors.
Virtual tours are scheduled based on the trunk’s arrival date. They include educational videos along with a private guided museum tour on Zoom.
Virtual tours are $2/student and $5/adult.
Classroom Presentations are available upon request. If you are interested in having one of our staff members present a lesson in your school, call (307-455-3429) or email to discuss topics and scheduling.
