Summary, etc.:
Documentary about Yellowstone National Park, today and in the past. In 1872, Yellowstone became the first area set aside "for the preservation of' its wonders" and "for the enjoyment of the people." Since then, the Park Service has seen its holdings grow exponentially, but Yellowstone--with attractions such as El Capitan and Old Faithful--remains the crown jewel of the system. However, its 2.2 million acres are at risk: from pollution, urban encroachment, and the over three million tourists that visit the park annually. Ecologists, environmentalists and scientists for the Park Service lead a tour of Yellowstone's most famous, fragile and threatened landmarks, detailing the damage that has occurred and explaining what must be done to keep Yellowstone safe for future generations.
