Yellowstone’s Wonder Revealed In New Geology Film


A spectacular new film on the geology of Yellowstone is now showing at the Canyon Visitor Education Center.

Yellowstone: Land to Life reveals how powerful geologic forces from fire to ice have combined to create a unique landscape which supports an abundant variety of life.

The eighteen minute film uses breathtaking photography and a lush original score to share the wonder and majesty of a place which continues to inspire awe in millions of visitors year after year.

This is the first film in Yellowstone to be fully accessible to visitors with hearing and visual disabilities.  It can also be heard in the visitors’ choice of English, Spanish, French, German, or Japanese.

It is being shown every hour on the hour in the Canyon Visitor Education Center auditorium.  A small screen version which can be viewed on computers and pocket-sized portable media players will soon be available online at www.nps.gov/yell.

Yellowstone: Land to Life was made possible by a generous donation from the Yellowstone Association, the nonprofit cooperating association which has supported the park’s interpretive and educational programs since 1933.
