About the Murie Ranch
The Murie Ranch is named for conservationists, ecologists and married couples Margaret (Mardy) and Olaus Murie, and Adolph and Louise Murie. The Muries purchased the STS dude ranch in 1945, which served as their home and a hub for the conservation movement. In 1997, The Murie Center was established as a non-profit to steward the Murie Ranch and the legacy of the Muries. In 2015, the Murie Ranch became a campus of Teton Science Schools. We continue to use the ranch to inspire engagement with nature and connect people to their public lands.
