Welcome, YPF Friend, to Yellowstone eNews!

In This Issue
This is one of the most serene times of year to visit Yellowstone. There are few crowds and many opportunities for solitude in the park's snowy valleys. In this issue, check out some tips for your winter outing in Yellowstone, and see what's happening behind the scenes in planning for summer projects.

Youth Conservation Corps Seeks Applicants

Yellowstone Youth Conservation Corps
Yellowstone’s Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) is now recruiting for its Summer 2012 program. Approximately 40 teen enrollees will be selected from across the country to participate in this annual program that offers the opportunity to live, work, learn and play in Yellowstone for one month. Application deadline is March 5, 2012.


North Entrance Plan Taking Shape

Roosevelt Arch
Take three steps out the door of a Park Street business in Gardiner, Montana and you are standing in Yellowstone National Park. You are also standing in a public street that serves nearly 700,000 visitors who pass through the park's North Entrance each year. This relatively traffic-free street can become congested and confusing during the peak summer season – not an ideal welcome to this historic gateway to Yellowstone.
