News From the Parks | Yellowstone National Park is CLOSED, Plastic Sales Banned in Parks & More
In this month's edition of News from the Parks, a late-breaking story out of Yellowstone, all 5 entrances are closed due to flooding and dangerous conditions. Also, the Interior Department is banning the sale of single-use plastics, a woman gets gored by a bison, and more. The America's National Parks Podcast episode on California Condors:
Grand Register of the Yo-Semite Valley
Yosemite was once a wild land ruled by grit. In the 1870s and 80s, only the hardiest of travelers braved the rumbling wagon road and the twenty-mile trek into the valley on mule or horseback. These were folk acclimated to the wild, people who had lived in mining towns or mountain villages their entire lives. Yet, tucked away in the packs of some of these rugged, hardened adventurers was beautiful, delicate china, artisan soaps, fragile full-length mirrors, and fresh crisp towels. Across the treacherous terrain strapped to stubborn scratchy mules, employees of the Cosmopolitan Bathhouse & Saloon brought luxury to the valley in a juxtaposition that defined so much of this era.
Teddy Roosevelt’s Namesakes: One Man, Many Parks
What do a brownstone in the heart of New York City, a site near the Canadian border in Buffalo, a forested island in Washington, D.C., and the sprawling North Dakota Badlands have in common? They are all units of the National Park Service named for Theodore Roosevelt. 
Marsh Billings Rockefeller: Conservation on a Grand Scale
On a picturesque estate in historic Woodstock, Vermont, carriage roads crosscut the property, through fields, flanked by stands of trees, providing scenic views of the estate, the adjacent farm, and the surrounding area. Historic buildings lie scattered across the estate: the mansion, the carriage barn, the wood barn, the horse shed. This idyllic setting, filled with old hardwood trees, open pastures, stone walls, and covered bridges, is the Marsh Billings Rockefeller National Historical Park.
News FromThe Parks | ”Fee Free”Smokies to End, Rabbit Disease, Bird Migration & More
In this month's news, we're sharing the proposed "parking tag" that the Great Smoky Mountains National Park may implement, the Brown v. Board of Education site is expanding, and more.    You can comment on the Smokies fees here: Visit 
Betty Reid Soskin
On Thursday, March 31, the oldest working National Park Service Ranger Betty Reid Soskin retired after a decade and a half of sharing her personal experiences and the efforts of women from diverse backgrounds who worked on the World War II Home Front.
Behind The Scene’s of Netflix’s ”Our Great National Parks”
Today on America’s National Parks, the new Our Great National Parks Series premiering April 13th on Netflix, and how these wonderful nature documentaries get made. Our guests are Executive Producer James Honeyborne, who produced the incredible award-award-winning "Blue Planet II," the most-watched wildlife documentary series for over 20 years. And award-winning fimmaker Sophie Todd, the Series Producer of Our Great National Parks. She also wrote, directed, and produced for Netflix’s "Formula 1: Drive To Survive."
The Women of Lowell
The dizzying thrum of the water-powered textile mills in Lowell, Massachusetts drowns out everything else. It is, in a word, deafening – so much so that the floor of the mill vibrates with intense ferocity.  Set along the Merrimack River, its tributaries, and canals, the city of Lowell had easy access to great quantities of rushing water to power the many mills of the city, which led to its swift success in the early days of the American Industrial Revolution. Today on the America’s National Parks Podcast, Lowell National Historical Park, and the women who made it work. 
The House on Brattle Street
Decades before Henry Wadsworth Longfellow would call the house on Brattle Street home, a General, tasked with leading the nation to freedom, would take up residency, and an enslaved couple would have a lasting and profound effect on Cambridge, Massachusetts. 
National Park News | New Mask Rules, Fewer Humpbacks, Missions Damaged, & a New Nat’l Historic Site
In this month's national park news roundup, we share info about the newest unit in the National Park Service system, the Amache National Historic Site. Plus, we cover things you might want to know about visiting a park this year — from new mask rules, to cashless payments, to prescribed fires, and we share some striking news about humpback whales in Glacier Bay National Park.
Discovering Yellowstone
150 years ago, the National Park idea was born, in a place called Yellowstone. That idea was helped along in part by a painter, Thomas Moran, who brought images of early Yellowstone exploration to the world, convincing Congress to take action. 
Steamtown and Pheobe Snow
In the heart of Pennsylvania coal country, trains had their heyday. As freight transportation matured beyond the canals of the early industrial days, railroads became the predominant means of moving goods, including anthracite coal, from the region.  The time: the turn of the twentieth century. The place: the Lackawanna Valley. The woman: a young socialite named Phoebe Snow, whose surname, Snow, conjures up the exact opposite of the black dirt of the steam railroad.
