Yellowstone’s diverse wildlife—not to mention the infamous Supervolcano—are all hot topics with park enthusiasts. But what about the lesser-known stories of Yellowstone National Park? This summer, the Yellowstone Forever Institute is offering a series of in-depth, educational Field Seminars that dive into Yellowstone’s rich history, as well as the park’s historic and present-day significance to native cultures.
