YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK NEWS RELEASE
----------------------------------------------------

It’s Our Birthday, But You Get The Present

The National Park Service (NPS) turns 97 on Sunday, August 25. To celebrate, admission to Yellowstone and all national parks are free that day; however, camping and other fees will not be waived.  

The NPS is waiving entrance fees on 11 days in 2013 as a way to encourage people to get outdoors and enjoy the remarkable landscapes and historical and cultural sites national parks have to offer.  

Other fee free dates still to come this year are National Public Lands Day on September 28, and November 9-11, which is the Veteran’s Day holiday weekend.

A seven-day pass to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks is normally $25 for a private, non-commercial vehicle.

Bison in Yellowstone.

There are more people hurt by bison than by bears each year in Yellowstone. Park regulations state that visitors must stay at least 25 yards away from bison or elk and 100 yards away from bears.
