APRIL 2011   

In This Issue
As the world celebrates Earth Day this month, our nation will also celebrate National Park Week. What better way to observe both events than to spend some time in a national park?

The 394 sites in the National Park System belong to all of us, so plan to get out and enjoy Yellowstone or another park during National Park Week, April 16-24, 2011. And if the amazing hikes, breathtaking scenery, wildlife, and history aren’t enough incentive for you, how about free admission? That's right, you can enter all parks for free, all week long! Plus, be sure to take advantage of special activities for children and families.

Where can you find priceless Thomas Moran watercolors from 1871, skulls from the original wolves reintroduced to Yellowstone in 1995, antique furniture from Park hotels that no longer exist, and civilian scout diaries from the U.S. Army period of 1896-1916? The Yellowstone Heritage & Research Center (HRC) is home to the Park’s library, archive, and museum collection, and many volunteers participate in the care of these priceless treasures.
