In This Issue

Since its establishment in 1872, Yellowstone has been “The People’s Park.” It is a place for everyone to enjoy, and also one that relies on the commitment, generosity, and careful preservation efforts of a great many individuals. We are honored to continue this tradition by providing everyone who loves the Park an opportunity to be involved. In this issue, learn about a few of the many ways you can participate in the stewardship of Yellowstone, and also read the second in our two-part series of articles on the importance of collars to wolf research in the Park.


Wolf Collaring Aids in Disease Research

Yellowstone Wolf

The best way to track and monitor Yellowstone’s wolves year-round is with collars. They are invaluable in monitoring wolves that travel great distances, often in rugged and inaccessible terrain. VHF and GPS collars enable Park biologists to collect important information about individual wolves, wolf packs, and their impact on many components of the ecosystem. In addition to the data collection that collars make possible, there is an added benefit: researchers gather vital information during the capture and collaring process itself.

Share Your Yellowstone Holiday Memories

Steamboat Geyser on Christmas 1962

The Yellowstone National Park Oral History Collection contains recordings from early Park rangers, former U.S. Presidents, and just ordinary people who have visited Yellowstone or grown up in the area.  They are a treasure trove of information and insight on the Park’s colorful history. However, there is very little in the collection about the winter holiday season.
