To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service, National Geographic has launched a yearlong exploration of the power of parks, including a special single-topic issue on Yellowstone. 
 
The magazine’s May 2016 issue, YELLOWSTONE: America’s Wild Idea, takes an in-depth look at the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem which encompasses Yellowstone National Park, Grand Teton National Park, national forests, wildlife refuges, and private lands, which total over 22.6 million acres, the largest collection of contiguous wild lands in the lower 48 states.
Yellowstone National Park Superintendent Dan Wenk said,
“Yellowstone National Park staff worked with National Geographic photographers, writers, and fact checkers for more than two years to create this special issue, our goal was to illuminate how special this place is and the incredible challenges it faces today. Everyone who cares about the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem and its future should read this issue.”
 
As David Quammen, the award-winning, principal author of the issue writes:
“Yellowstone is more than just a park. It’s a place where, more than 140 years ago, people began to negotiate a peace treaty with the wild. That negotiation continues today, with growing urgency, at Yellowstone and all over the planet, as the human world expands and the natural world retreats. Can we come to terms?”
 
The May issue is on newsstands now and available in park bookstores and online through the Yellowstone Association and the Grand Teton Association.
