Yellowstone Celebrates 150 Years

Stay with us during the 2022 summer season and receive a US National Parks annual pass in honor of Yellowstone’s 150th birthday! 

March 1, 2022 marked the 150th anniversary of the establishment of Yellowstone National Park, but the park is celebrating all summer long.

During March-August this year, the park and partners will provide opportunities to reflect on 150 years of protecting Yellowstone National Park, highlight successes in the ecosystem, and open dialogue on the lessons learned from yesterday, the challenges of today, and a vision for tomorrow. We will focus on the stewards of Yellowstone, conservation and historic preservation, visitor experience, infrastructure, Tribal Nations, and partner engagement via social media, a bimonthly virtual video series featuring various subject matter experts, and a range of both virtual and in-person activities. Of particular importance to Yellowstone during the commemoration is to be reflective, intentional, inclusive, and impactful.

When Yellowstone became a national park, it was the first of its kind in the world. The notion of setting aside wild land to protect it from development was alien to a lot of Americans back then. Because of a lot of park rangers, legislators, policies and citizens, Yellowstone is just as unique as it was when it was founded.

Yellowstone serves as the core of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, one of the last and largest nearly intact natural ecosystems on the planet. Yellowstone has the most active, diverse, and intact collections of combined geothermal features with over 10,000 hydrothermal sites and half the world’s active geysers. The park is also rich in cultural and historical resources with 25 sites, landmarks, and districts on the National Register of Historic Places.

We invite you to come visit Yellowstone this year and stay with us. We have properties in both Jackson Hole and Teton Valley, Idaho. Teton Valley, Idaho actually being a bit closer to Yellowstone National Park. Either location, you will not be disappointed by our luxury accommodations.
