Midway Geyser Photo

 

Photographers are invited to share their favorite winter photos of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem during a Winter Photo Festival to be held next month in West Yellowstone.

The festival is sponsored by the National Park Service and the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center.  It will be held at the West Yellowstone Visitor Information Center on Wednesday, March 11 at 7:00 PM.

Photographers are asked to bring digital photos on a thumb drive or photo CD so they can display and narrate their photos. 

Interested photographers should contact Rich Jelhe at 307-344-2840 for more information.  Participants must register by Friday, March 6.

This free program is the third in this year’s winter speaker series.  The West Yellowstone Visitor Information Center is located at the corner of Canyon and Yellowstone in West Yellowstone, Montana.
