The Road Scholar program offers learning adventures all over the greater Yellowstone area, serving more than 800 participants per year.

We believe in living life to the fullest at every age — by meeting new people, touching history where it happened, and delving deep into the cultures and landscapes of the greater Yellowstone eco-system and beyond. Led by expert instructors and leaders affiliated with University of Montana Western, be immersed in history, culture, and geography as you discover this idyllic region’s national park and off-the-beaten-path locales by foot, road, raft, coach, and camera.
