Six years of monitoring Yellowstone National Park’s wildlife during winter has shown bison and elk are fairly accustomed to snowmobile and snowcoach use, prompting managers to recommend ending the surveillance.
Almost 873,000 recreation visits were recorded, a 4% increase from last September and a 26% jump from September 2019.

The most viewed wolf pack in the world lost three of its members to Montana hunters during the first week of the hunting season in September.
Selected hydrothermal features at Yellowstone National Park have data loggers that capture geyser eruption times. A systematic analysis of these data can reveal variations in geyser activity over time and between different geyser basins.
Locating earthquakes in Yellowstone is a time-intensive process that requires the trained eye and extensive experience of a human analyst. But advances in computer algorithms, known as “machine learning” tools, hold promise for automatically locating earthquakes that might otherwise be overlooked, and the dawn of a new age in seismology.
A Washington man has died in Yellowstone National Park and a search continues for his camping partner.
Much is known about how the chemical compositions of gases vary across the Yellowstone volcanic system, but how they vary in time has remained largely a mystery. Our understanding should greatly improve with a recent installation of a station that continuously monitors gases and communicates those data in real time.
Wyoming will ask the federal government to remove its protections for grizzly bears in the Yellowstone region and permit the region's three states to manage and potentially allow hunting of the big bruins in certain areas.
In a season of record setting, Yellowstone National Park's August visitation was again a new high point in the park's history.
Just south of Mammoth Hot Springs, near the north entrance of Yellowstone National Park, lies a jumble of white/gray rock known as the Hoodoos or, more formally, Silver Gate. The origin of this deposit is a quintessential tale of the dynamic nature of Yellowstone.
Visitation was up 17% to 24% compared to Saturday, Sunday and Monday of the Labor Day weekend in 2019.

A Connecticut woman faces a week in jail and $2,400 in fines after being prosecuted for walking across a thermal area in Yellowstone National Park.
Water temperatures are now well below thermal thresholds for trout and flows are returning to long-term averages.
When it comes to data, Yellowstone National Park is a geophysicist’s dream. There is continuous activity from earthquakes, geysers, and of course, the volcano itself. A keen eye may be able to spot one of the park’s numerous GPS or seismometer stations hard at work, but some of the park’s data collectors are buried deep within the Earth, hidden from sight in boreholes.
The new mask mandate comes as gateway communities around Yellowstone and Grand Teton are struggling with a tight labor market and supply chain difficulties.
Visitors to Yellowstone National Park ask a lot of questions. So how do park rangers answer when they are asked, “Where is the volcano?”
This program identifies brucellosis-free bison and moves them through a multi-year quarantine process with the goal of relocating them to select tribal and public lands.
Details regarding the rescue and investigation into the grizzly bear mauling of a 40-year-old West Yellowstone man in April have been published in a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service fatality report, yet some questions remain unanswered.
Some June visitors to Yellowstone National Park were treated to a Crow-style teepee set up next to the Roosevelt Arch at the North Entrance.
The M7.3 Hebgen Lake earthquake in 1959 is one of the two largest recorded earthquakes in the entire Intermountain West of the United States. We might still be seeing aftershocks from that event in what today is the most seismically active area of the Yellowstone region.
Gov. Greg Gianforte announced Wednesday allocation of over $35 million in coronavirus relief dollars.
