Park Visits Down

NPSLogo

Visits to Yellowstone National Park last month slipped slightly according to the monthly report from the National Park Service Public Use Statistics Office.  That report says 27-thousand-752 people entered the park for recreation – a 1.5% decline from last year and another 44-thousand-319 were in the park for non-recreational reasons – a ¼% increase in business.  Together, the total traffic into the park spells a decrease of less that ½%.  Grand Teton saw a much higher decline according to the report, but park officials quickly point out that technical problems with the counters make the statistics very unreliable.  Those published statistics show a 35% decrease in traffic into the park.

    If you’re really serious about hunting, you’re probably not listening to this. Depending on where you are in the state, the sun’s either up already or sunrise isn’t far away. If you’re a die-hard hunter, you’re probably already hunkered down in a field waiting for the geese to come in, out in the timber trying […]
  • Not all bad news in judge’s decision to relist wolves - September 30, 2014
    U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson handed down a ruling last week that removed wolves from Wyoming control and put them back under the protection of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
