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

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.
