Yellowstone Park Foundation

July/August 2011


Dear Friend:

Summer is a time for outdoor fun with family and friends, and hopefully a visit to Yellowstone or any one of our spectacular national parks.  With barbeques, beach trips and hikes to enjoy, we’re betting that reading your email is not high on your priority list. With that in mind, we bring you a different e-newsletter format – “Summer Bits & Pieces.”  Instead of in-depth articles, we’d like to share with you a few newsy items to keep you up-to-date and help you make the most of your summer park visit:
