by Yellowstone National Park
July 22, 2009
For the first time in history, Yellowstone National Park is conducting live ranger talks specifically for the online audience.
Park Ranger George Heinz will present these programs from Geyser Hill, the location of the greatest concentration of geysers in the world. Geyser Hill is immediately adjacent to Old Faithful Geyser and the area’s associated historic structures.
There will be two programs each Tuesday and Thursday through August 14.
At 11:00 a.m. Mountain Daylight Time (1:00 p.m. Eastern), Ranger George will tell us about the history of the area and the historic structures that still survive today, as well as those that have succumbed to time. Historic photos are used to illustrate the buildings that are no longer
At 2:00 p.m. Mountain Daylight Time (4:00 p.m. Eastern), the discussion will turn to Yellowstone’s hydrothermal features with a program titled, Geysers, Hot Springs and More.
The live programs can be viewed on the Old Faithful Live Streaming Webcam
