The University of Wyoming College of Law and the Haub School of Environment and Natural
Resources hosted the 150th Anniversary of Yellowstone National Park Symposium in Cody,
Wyoming at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West on May 19th and 20th, 2022.
The symposium featured prominent figures from the National Park Service and elsewhere
within the Department of the Interior—including Yellowstone Superintendent Cam Sholly—as
well as from numerous Yellowstone-associated Native American tribes. They were joined
by a host of academics, scholars, scientists, and other participants. The historic
event explored the goals, successes, and shortcomings of the park over the past 150
years, and looked to the future to examine key issues it now faces. Keynote speakers
and panels discussed wide-ranging topics, including tribal connections to Yellowstone,
federal-tribal co-management, art and social engagement, wildlife management across
the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, unprecedented visitation and economic development
within the tourism and recreation sector, and large-landscape conservation. The symposium is approved by the Wyoming State Bar Association for 14.25 hours of
Continuing Legal Education.
