Three Yellowstone National Park superintendents will talk about their tenures guiding the world’s first national park and take questions in West Yellowstone, Mont. later this month.
Current Yellowstone Superintendent Dan Wenk will be joined by former superintendents Mike Finley and Bob Barbee as featured speakers for the Greater Yellowstone Coalition’s 30th anniversary celebration Saturday, Sept. 21, at the Union Pacific Dining Hall in West Yellowstone.
The Greater Yellowstone Coalition is a Bozeman-based conservation group dedicated to protecting the lands, waters and wildlife of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
Wenk, Finley and Barbee will engage in a “fireside chat” and take questions from a moderator as well as the audience. A reception, silent auction and cash bar starts at 5:30 p.m.; cost for the entire evening is $60.
The celebration also features a reception from 4-6 p.m. Friday, Sept. 21, during which founding members and former board members will be honored for their service. Saturday’s offerings include a variety of field trips in and around Yellowstone National Park.
Cost for the full event is $130 for GYC members and $180 for non-members.
