In This Issue

We hope your summer is off to a great start, and that you and your family have carved out some time this season to spend enjoying Yellowstone or any of our public lands.  Here in Yellowstone we are fortunate to have some of the nation’s finest rangers who are experienced in youth education and eager to help your child, grandchild, or other young person explore the Park’s wonders.  The Junior Ranger program, featured in this issue, is just one of the available ranger-led activities.  To learn more about other family-friendly offerings, visit Yellowstone’s Kids Page.


Wanted: Junior Rangers for Yellowstone!

Junior Ranger Patch

Yellowstone has a way of bringing out the child in all of us, but kids aged 5-12 have a program designed just for them.  More than 150 national parks, including Yellowstone, have established Junior Ranger programs to introduce children to the natural wonders and fascinating histories of the parks.  The programs are designed to provide participants with active fun, and the flexibility to explore the parks at their own pace and within the limits of their own time.

Friends Help Enhance Bear Safety

Bear-Safe Campgrounds Project

In the spring of 2009, the Yellowstone Park Foundation launched the Sponsor a Bear Box campaign. It offers Friends of Yellowstone a unique opportunity to play a direct role in making Yellowstone safer for both bears and visitors. For each $1,000 in contributions raised through this campaign, the Foundation is funding the purchase and installation of a bear-proof food storage box in a Park campground. Our goal is to fund a total of 50 new boxes by this summer, and the death last week of a bear in Yellowstone underscores the importance of this effort.

Shuttle Carried Yellowstone Items Into Space

Shuttle Carried Yellowstone Items Into Space

Several small items representing Yellowstone National Park orbited the earth this past winter, and recently returned to the Park after their incredible journey.  The items were aboard the space shuttle Endeavour, which launched into space in February 2010 from the Kennedy Space Center for a rendezvous with the International Space Station.
