Yellowstone To Issue 2013 Firewood Collection Permits

Yellowstone National Park will be accepting public requests April 12-14 for those interested in receiving a 2013 firewood collection permit.

Excess firewood periodically becomes available in the park for a variety of reasons including reducing the amount of wildland fire fuel, trees knocked down by high winds, construction projects or hazard tree removal.

Those interested in applying for a permit are asked to phone Yellowstone's Visitor Services Office at (307) 344-2116 between midnight Friday, April 12 until midnight Sunday, April 14 and to leave their name and daytime telephone number. Names left before April 12 will not be accepted. After Sunday, April 14, names will only be accepted weekdays during normal business hours by calling (307) 344-2107.

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 up to three cords of wood to be collected. 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 at the time the permit is issued.

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