Yellowstone Seeks Volunteers For National Public Lands Day Project
Entrance fee waived for all visitors Saturday, September 28

The National Park Service will waive park entrance fees on Saturday, September 28, in conjunction with National Public Lands Day.

Yellowstone National Park is looking for volunteers for one work project which will occur as part of the 20th annual event.

Volunteers will participate in trail restoration work along the Purple Mountain Trail located in the Madison Junction area. Volunteers will work from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., installing water bars and other trail structures that will greatly improve the conditions on the trail. This work is strenuous, requiring the use of hand tools including shovels and picks, lifting heavy timbers and bags of rock, and working at high altitudes and in variable weather conditions.

Space is limited to 20 volunteers. Volunteers are asked to register by September 19. If interested in volunteering for this trail project please email your name and phone numbers to Yell_Volunteer_Office@nps.gov or call 307-344-2729 and leave a voice mail with your name and phone number.

Drinks and snacks will be provided. All volunteers should bring lunch, water, sunscreen, insect repellant, and sturdy footwear, and be prepared with adequate clothing for variable weather conditions.

Those who participate in a National Public Lands Day volunteer activity will receive a coupon good for a one-time free entrance to Yellowstone or another federally managed area of their choice.
