Yellowstone Firewood Permits Available Soon
 
Yellowstone National Park will soon be accepting the names of individuals interested in receiving firewood collection permits during 2010.

Excess firewood is periodically available in the park for a variety of reasons, including wildland fire fuel mitigation, wind events, construction projects, or hazard tree removal. 

Individuals interested in applying for a permit are asked to call the Visitor Services Office at (307) 344-2116 from March 26 through 28 to leave their name and daytime telephone number.  Permits will be issued in the order phone calls are received.  Successful applicants will be contacted as wood becomes available throughout the year.

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

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