Yellowstone’s Hayden Valley has been shaped by
volcanism, ice, and water. Its unique geologic history
has created a variety of habitats that provide for a
rich diversity of plant and animal life.
Join a crew of alien visitors as they zoom in on Hayden Valley to
explore the unique geology and ecosystems found here.
Dive under the Earth’s surface for a lesson on hotspots; then emerge to follow bears, bison, elk, wolves, and other creatures through a Hayden Valley year.
