Yellowstone National Park Yellowstone is the first and the oldest natural park in the world. On March 1, 1872 Yellowstone was dedicated as a public park for the enjoyment of the people and for the preservation of all natural wonders and their retention in their natural condition. There are more geysers and hot springs here then in the rest of the world. It has a large area of 3468 square miles. Yellowstone was called so because the river which flows here has water of yellow colour. The colourful Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River, fossil forests and the elevation of the yellow Lake make them an unmissable destination. It’s the place with 600 different kinds of trees and plants and 200 kinds of birds such as swans, white-haired sea eagles and white pelicans. Many rare animals live here – black bears, bisons, deer, elks, steppe wolves and others. Yellowstone is a true wilderness, one of the few large, natural areas which must be protected and preserved.
