Prepare yourself; the arrowleaf balsamroot photos are coming... . . . A key adaptation of arrowleaf balsamroot is its taproot, which can be as thick as your hand. The root can be up to 8 feet long, is covered with bark, and also contains resin. Hence, then name ‘balsamroot’. This robust taproot makes the plant resistant to fire, grazing, trampling, and drought. . . . PC: Bo Welden

Journeys School preK students have been monitoring a fox den on the Jackson Campus this spring. On Friday, PreK brought out spotting scopes to make observations of the den. With some help from @grandtetonnps biologists, PreK faculty recently placed new game cameras to monitor the den. If we get any good pictures of 🦊 kits, we'll share them here. PC: Paige Fisher
This video may be blurry, but it’s still worth watching, as this isn’t something you get to see every day. A Yellowstone bison defends her calf from two wolves, hunting as a team. Wildlife Expeditions Faculty Kevin Taylor (@wildlifeexpeditions ) was there with his clients to film this predator/prey drama play out in real time. #PhenologyFriday #tetonscience #wildlifeexpeditions #JacksonHole #Wyoming #Yellowstone #wolf #canuslupus #bison #bisonbison #predatorprey
