You stand at the North Entrance to Yellowstone National Park.
To enter, you pass under a huge brick archway that bears a stone inscription: “For the Benefit and Enjoyment of the People.”
This simple notice sends a towering message. It says that this park–one of the most magnificent and pristine environments on Earth–is for everyone. Not just the wealthy, not only the powerful, but for every member of our national community. No matter your background, your education, your income, or your age, you own this place. It is yours.
