Yellowstone National Park, established in 1872, is one of America’s oldest and most beautiful national parks open to the public. The park uniquely spans three states: Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho. Yellowstone features a depth of biodiversity that makes preservation of this global treasure a high priority. Visitors to Yellowstone National Park often see large mammalian wildlife like grizzly bears and elk roaming among lively streams, spectacular waterfalls, and mysterious petrified forests.
