At a Glance

Three predawn departures into Yellowstone guarantee arrival at the park’s legendary northern range by dawn for optimum wildlife viewing. Watch for elk, wolves, bison, waterfowl, eagles, coyotes, bighorn sheep, mountain fox and other inhabitants of the region, and consider bison issues, winter adaptations, predator/prey dynamics, declining elk and coyote numbers, rebounding willow and aspen stands and more. Trace the evolution of the park’s wolf management philosophy from predator extermination to wolf reintroduction and natural regulation.
