Jamie Walton

Jamie Walton

A deep love of wildlife and ecological relationships has inspired Jamie Walton’s development as a natural history field guide. Formally educated at the University of Wyoming, where he studied Biology and Education, Jamie was an instructor and the ranch manager at the Audubon Ecology Workshop in the Rockies for a decade, and followed that as a manager for the Jackson, Wyoming-based Wildlife Expeditions, a natural history tour program for Grand Teton and Yellowstone national parks. Jamie has since migrated to Bozeman, Montana where he lives with his wife, Patty. In addition to leading tours for conservation and education groups, including Smithsonian Natural Resource Defense Council, National Audubon Society, National Parks Conservation Association, and Greater Yellowstone Coalition, Jamie does wildlife research for the non-profit organizations Wild Things Unlimited, The Wolf Project, and Adventurers and Scientists for Conservation as well as working full time as a paramedic. And, in addition to being a wonderful guide, Jamie is a fine outdoorsman, bicyclist, and skier.

Lynette Noble

Lynette's love of the outdoors began at an early age with a semi-feral upbringing on her family's dairy farm in Vermont. The mere fact that she was not often allowed inside helped to foster an intimate relationship with the wild world. She received her bachelor's degree in ecology with a minor in wildlife biology from the University of Montana, and has been fortunate to follow her passions for observation and exploration ever since. Lynette is fascinated by the complex ecology of predator-prey relationships and worked for many years as a research biologist, studying carnivores such as wolves, coyotes, foxes, bears and pine marten throughout the western U.S. and Alaska.

In 2008 Lynette began leading educational adventure tours, drawing on her research experience to immerse travelers in the ecological and cultural spirit of an area. Alongside curious travelers from around the world, she has been fortunate enough to explore such cherished places as Yellowstone, Grand Teton and Denali National Parks, the fjords of Tongass National Forest and Great Bear Rainforest, the national parks of California and the Desert Southwest, and the subarctic ecosystem of Churchill, Manitoba.

When not touring with adventurous guests, Lynette makes her home on the Big Island of Hawaii, where she enjoys exploring the vast diversity of the landscape—from flowing lava to snow-capped peaks. She recently became active in triathlons and she is considered by those with authority to be an extreme novice with the ukulele.
