Sean Beckett

Sean Beckett grew up exploring the woods of northern Vermont. His love for the outdoors developed into a love of birdwatching, avian ecology and environmental education. He graduated from Vassar College in upstate New York with a degree in Biology and Environmental Studies. For several summers he worked for the National Audubon Society's Project Puffin conserving and monitoring Atlantic puffins, arctic terns, and other northern Atlantic seabirds. When the seabirds weren't nesting he traveled across the United States researching and catching owls, hawks, and songbirds. His research on small forest owl migration can now be found in leading ornithology journals. Eager to continue conservation research, he moved into the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem to work as a conservation cartographer, mapping and radio-tracking species like mule deer, pika, mountain lions, Clark's nutcrackers, and nesting songbirds.

Sean's research background in wildlife ecology and interpretive work with Teton Science School make him especially well suited to facilitate amazing nature and wildlife encounters for his guests. As a Nat Hab guide, Sean has led numerous private and small-group safaris across Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks. He likes to share the excitement of hands-on scientific inquiry as a means to foster knowledge of the natural world. For instance, Sean may teach his guests about fire ecology by melting the resin off a serotinous cone with a lighter, or demonstrate the waterproofing and insulating qualities of fur by having them pour water over a beaver pelt. In every setting, he seeks to move travelers over the line from removed observation to a direct and intimate engagement with nature.
