TBI and Yellowstone National Park

June 19th and 27th 2007 TBI partnered with YNP and continued support for ParKids, a day camp program that rotates through Yellowstone gateway communities.  This year faculty members Mark Young and Tim McDermott participated with schools in West Yellowstone and Paradise Valley. In its 4th year, this popular program shares hands-on science with local community kids.
