Want to see some bighorn sheep?

Two very good articles have recently been published about the Whiskey Mountain Bighorn Sheep herd and the wildlife viewing tours offered by the National Bighorn Sheep Center.

Please read Josh Cooper's article "Roaming Rams" on the Jackson Hole News & Guide website here.

We are pleased to re-publish Kelsey Dayton's blog from the Peaks to Plains section of wyofile.com here.

See our Wildlife Tours page for more information on both guided and self-guided wildlife watching tours of the Whiskey Basin Wildlife Habitat Management Area.

What is a bighorn sheep?

Our Mission:

The National Bighorn Sheep Interpretive Association is dedicated to educating the public about the biology and habitat needs of the Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep and to encouraging the active stewardship of wildlife and wild lands.

Our Interpretive Center features dioramas with full-scale taxidermy mounts that recreate the bighorns habitat, interactive exhibits about wildlife management and special adaptations of wild sheep, and wildlife films the whole family will enjoy.
