A refreshing stop for wildlife viewing is the The Teller, a 1,200-acre private wildlife conservation property intended to inspire, educate, and demonstate conservation in action. Situated along 3 mi of the Bitterroot River, about 8 mi north of Hamilton, the refuge is home to otters, beavers, spotted frogs, and salamanders, as well as pileated woodpeckers, birds of prey, waterfowl, whitetail deer, and many native plants. Visitors can take a stroll on the half-loop walking
trail along the Bitterroot River. An education center conducts numerous conservation programs for the public. Conference groups and wedding parties may arrange to stay in the three homes on the refuge. To get here, take Route 269 (Eastside Highway) to Quast Lane and follow the signs.
