YELLOWSTONE N.P. – Scientists and managers are gathering June 3-5 to review the geothermal system in the Old Faithful area – they’ll review both what they know, and what they don’t.

Panelists with a wide range of backgrounds and experience will share knowledge about the area’s hydrothermal systems and discuss potential areas for research.

The goal, according to NPS information, is to help current and future park managers understand how the hydrothermal system is influenced or impacted by human actions in the area to aid in decisions about any potential infrastructure changes.

The panel discussions begin at 8 a.m. each day and are open to the public. Limited seating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis in the second floor conference room of the Old Faithful Snow Lodge.

The panel is funded through a grant from the Yellowstone Park Foundation.
