Yellowstone's Impact on the State's Economy

A report released this week by the National Park Service showed that 3.64 million visitors to Yellowstone National Park in 2010 had a significant impact on Wyoming's economy. Park Spokesman Al Nash explains just how much of an impact was provided by park visitors.

The NPS report indicated that across the U.S., local visitor spending to national parks resulted in a total of $31 billion to the national economy and supported more than 258,000 jobs nationwide.
