GREAT NEWS: Court Curtails Snowmobile Use in Yellowstone


Winter Wildlands Alliance reports the following on their effort to limit winter motorized recreation in Yellowstone National Park:

The court found that the Administration authorized snowmobile use despite scientific conclusions by the National Park Service that its decision would result in significant increases in noise and unhealthy exhaust, which disrupt the experiences of visitors, and traffic that harms Yellowstone's wildlife, including bison."
