The National Park Service invites the public to participate in the volunteer program at the Yellowstone Heritage and Research Center for the fall and winter season.

The Heritage Center houses the park's library, archives, and museum collection. As such, it's the keep of many items; records, books, museum objects, etc.  It has one of the largest collections in the National Park Service.  It is also the keeper of stories. The collections tell the story of the world's first national park and the creation of the National Park Service. These are important enough to the American Story that the collections warrant being an affiliate of the National Archives.

Because of the significance and value of these collections, the NPS is seeking volunteers to help staff the information and security checkpoint in the Center as well as assist with important project work.  Shifts would be for a half or full day per week for the season.

The Heritage and Research Center is located just outside the North Entrance to the park in Gardiner, Montana.

For information, please call Program Manager, Carol Shively, at (307) 344-2663.

Bear Cubs

Even though the animals of Yellowstone seem tame they are still wild. Feeding the animals is not permitted in any way, and all visitors must keep 100 yards away from wolves and bears, and 25 yards from other animals.
