Yellowstone National Park will soon be accepting names of individuals interested in receiving firewood collection permits during 2007. Excess firewood is periodically available in the park due to such events as wildland fire fuel mitigation, strong winds, construction projects, or hazard tree removal.

Individuals interested in applying for a permit are asked to call (307) 344-2116 from March 30 through April 1 to leave their name and daytime telephone number. Permits will be issued in the order calls are received. The number of permits issued is dependent on the availability of wood. Successful applicants will be contacted as wood becomes available.

Permits cost $25 and allow the taking of up to three cords of wood. There is no guarantee that three cords will be available for each permittee. Specific site guidelines and regulations, including hours and dates of collection, will be explained as permits are issued.

For further information, please call the Visitor Services Office at (307) 344-2107.

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.
