1. Yellowstone National Park Marker
Inscription. Yellowstone has been designated a U.S. Biosphere Reserve, a World Heritage Site, and is one of the largest national parks in the lower 48 states. Its boundaries protect over 10,000 geysers,hot springs, mudpots, and steam vents-the earth's largest array of geothermal features. An incredible variety of wildlife, including some threatened and rare species, is also protected in a vast wilderness habitat. Geysers and hot springs played a compelling role in the park's establishment. Since then, the Yellowstone area has become valued for many other things: wildlife, scenery, recreation, wilderness-and natural processes. Here, these elements makeup the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, a place where all things share complex, interdependent relationships.
