A nation’s Park containing man and beast, in all the wild and freshness of their nature’s beauty!” 1858 H.D. Thoreau - Made a plea for “National Preserves, in which the bear, and the panther and some even of the hunter race may still exist, and not be civilized off the face of the earth - not for idle sport or food, but for inspiration and our own true recreation.” Yellowstone National Park is both our first and largest National Park covering 3,472 Square miles.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
