YNP Firewood

Firewood gathering permits are to become available in Yellowstone National Park for a short time beginning the end of this week.  Park Spokesman Al Nash explains that 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 Friday and Sunday to leave their name and daytime telephone number.  Permits will be issued in the order phone calls are received.  The cost of the permits is $25 for a maximum of three cords.  Once the permits are awarded, the successful applicant will be contacted as the wood becomes available throughout the year.

  • Diapers weren’t a magic bullet for staying cool - July 25, 2014
    I promised you yesterday that I’d test a new product to see how well it works to keep you cool when the temperatures climb toward triple digits.   In case you missed it, yesterday I talked about seeing an ad on TV for a new type of training pants. The ad said, and I quote, […]
