What year did Yellowstone become a national park?



  1. 0 Votes

    In March of 1872, President Ulysses S Grant passed an act that allowed Yellowstone to become the nation’s – and the world’s – first National Park. This followed a major conference of biologists, zoologists, botanists, geologists and artists who unanimously agreed that the location was scientifically and aesthetically valuable. This group voted to preserve the land, thus preventing any major development or human encroachment from ever occurring there, and set the precedent that eventually led to the creation of the National Park Service (under President Woodrow Wilson) in 1916, under the National Park Service Organic Act.
