From the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO): Heritage is our legacy from the past, what we live with today, and what we pass on to future generations. Our cultural and natural heritage are both irreplaceable sources of life and inspiration.
Yellowstone National Park is known the world over for its incredible natural features and abundant wildlife. It was inscribed in 1978 as the 28th site on UNESCO’s World Heritage list, and was the United States' first declared World Heritage Site. Yellowstone is a volcanic "hot spot", encompassing 3,500 square miles that “contain half of all the world's known geothermal features, with more than 10,000 examples. It also has the world's largest concentration of geysers – more than 300 geysers, or two thirds of all those on the planet (UNESCO).
