Welcome Myraida and Ryan, too and thank you Tasunka for inviting them!
Myraida, posting and creating new threads for others to read would be a great help to our group. Any way to get the public aware of all the harm being done to animals and nature is what we need to do. Also, inviting others to participate and post on FB or elsewhere would be a great help too.
The group has been mainly about bison, wolves and other endangered/mistreated wild animals living out West but adding Indian heritage to the group is a great idea, Tasunka! That gives us another avenue with which to expand. In fact we could include native plants and other things that, because of man, are fast disappearing.
myraida...so glad to see you here. also I noticed my good friend ryan ,has joined....WELCOME I will be co-hosting this group,to help disseminate our heritage and teach all about the wonders of nature, and the medicine path... will be thanking vicky for the chance,in the other post....
Thanks for the invitation to join the group! Hello everybody!

Thanks, Sue. As I said in my response to you (besides the happy birthday), I have a family history with Yellowstone. My grandfather named the Lone Star geyser. Nothing to do with Texas; it was named because it was all alone with no other geysers around it. He was a mountain man in the 1800s and traveled the area many times before settling down in what is now Billings, MT. Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks are my favorite places on earth. The Yellowstone area is named in my will though the Nature Conservancy.
Thanks so much for the invite to join your group. Sue you are such a honey! Yours in peace and love, Charmaine x
Hi Brigid!! I'm so glad you joined our group. Things have been so slow for a long time but I refuse to give it up. Hopefully people are at least reading some of the posts!
When you get your new computer be sure to post lots of pictures! I can't wait!
Hello to everyone I have not been here for a long time sorry1 Beautiful photos on the site1 I would like to save some, but have to wait until I can do so on my home computer... Have a beautiful day all!
Eva, thank you so much for joining our group and thank you also for volunteering with the BFC! It takes special people to do that. I'm glad you posted your links to your blog and photos and I hope everyone will check them out. We would love for you to post some of your pics within our group and you could also start a thread about current info regarding Montana, the bison or Yellowstone Park. We would love to be as knowledgeable as possible on what's going on and what we can do to help.
I wanted to introduce myself. I lived in Montana a few years, but have recently moved back to WA. In MT I have volunteered in the summer with Buffalo Field Campaign. I looooove the buffalo.
I am soo glad I found this group.
I currently maintain a blog about the "mismanagement" of wildlife in Montana.
Check it out. http://wildlifemismanagement.blogspot.com/
I also have photos of protests against the buffalo slaughter that were held in Montana posted on flickr http://flickr.com/photos/evasight/sets/72157605061298943/
All the Best
Jason, we are so happy to have you as our newest member! I, too, love bison (although I've never seen one in person) and I have fought long and hard for their freedom for years. Please post any stories you have about Yellowstone, bison, wolves, elks or other nature stuff. If you have photos post them as well....we all love to look at photos! We hope to see you around a lot!

Just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. I have had my most incredible experiences with nature in yellowstone, especially with bison. I am glad to see a group dedicated to the bison issue there. Thanks and keep up the good work. I will be visiting often.
Birdie!! So glad you could make it dear friend! Make yourself at home and cruise the threads. If you have any articles about the wildlife in and around Yellowstone or what's going on in Montana or Wyoming please start a new thread for us to read!
I am late checking in but I am here.

Welcome Muriel and MsDeb! Yes, we need to pray for Yellowstone Park and its inhabitants, in whatever area is needed. Thank you Muriel for suggesting that. MsDeb, we hope you can stop in often and we look forward to everyone's input. If anyone has articles or news events or photos they would like to post, feel free to do so! That's what we need to keep us all informed.
Thank you for sending me here. May we all send prayers out for this area. It's much needed in this time of great transformation of consciousness.

Hello and welcome to our newest members! We'd like to welcome Matt, Glenda, Charles, Hazel and Chief. Feel free to introduce yourselves and tell us a little about yourself and read our threads. We would love for you to create new ones as well. This group is mainly dedicated to the animals/wildlife of Yellowstone and other issues in this area of the country.

Hi Joy!! So glad you made it! I know how busy you are fighting for the animals in many groups....but it is always good to add one more group to your repertoire! Thank you for any time you can devote here; it well appreciated. If you can add a thread or post on the current ones is fine! News updates are always welcomed!
Marian, we're so glad to have you as our newest member! How awesome that Yellowstone is in your backyard! Bison are one of my favorite causes and if you can help in any way be sure to post information! Of course if you have any other causes in the Yellowstone area that you would like to bring to our attention please do so! We would love to hear them so we can all work together for the good to try and resolve them.'
O.K., I guess I forgot to add a 2nd. Anyway, 2nd, I am really happy to see that there is a group here that is dedicated to Yellowstone. It's a special place that really belongs to the world and deserves it's own group. So...Thank you!!!
First, let me say that I wasn't invited by anyone, I just happened to spot this group and thought that since Yellowstone is my backyard, this is the place for me. I hope no one will mind if I drop in from time to time.
I want to welcome a dear banana eating clicker from Vote4cause named Gorilly!!! Hello Gorilly and welcome! Please post as much as you can as this group needs a good mouthpiece for the voice of all endangered or abused animals! Here is a poem Gorilly posted and unfortunately it says it all:
Only after the last tree has been cut down;
Only after the last fish has been caught;
Only after the last river has been poisoned;
Only then will you realize
that money cannot be eaten.
Gorilly, if there is not a thread for non-yellowstone animal causes (like the gorilla) feel free to start one. Gorillas are very dear to me!

Big Gorilly Hugs....
I am so happy to see Indy and Lyn as our newest members. Thank you so much for joining and please post anything to help us save the animals! Bison, wolves, anything around Yellowstone (since this group is dedicated specifically to that).
Welcome, Faoldubh to our group! I hope you will introduce yourself and post that beautiful mountain picture on our photos and videos thread! Visit when you can; it is always a pleasure to meet another bison lover!

I love animals and would do anything within my power to help them. If there is something going on in my area, I'm there!

Thank you dear friend for joining. Welcome.
Hi Decraien and welcome to our group!! Please feel free to post and create threads. What a thrill to see a mama bear and her cubs!! Be sure to post that in the 'Ever Been to Yellowstone' thread or the 'Animals of Yellowstone'! We'd love to hear about your adventures!
This post was modified from its original form on 17 Apr, 14:59
Thanks for the invite!
I have been in Yellowstone national park a long time ago and I saw a mamma bear with cubs!
Janet K! so glad you found us again!!! You know we didn't think to post on the other group that we started this one although I thought we emailed all our contacts!! Your perserverance is very important to causes like these and we value your support and input!! Your help and ideas are greatly appreciated!
HeyVicky !!! So thrilled to see you decided to take the initiative on bringing this vitally important cause back to life !!! it took so long for me to find the new group......I'll admiton even really checking on the old one....seemed you were the only one occasionally popping in....I too never received a reply to my contacts with the host. Anyway....here I am....anxious to learn.... to you and the other co-hosts for your commitmentto the plight of the bison(& their Yellowstone companions!).
Erika, what a blessing to be able to see wolf packs!!!
Janice, I pray they will stop the snowmobiles in the park! I picture a park as beautiful and serene!! Not filled with a lot of loud, boisterous machines and people. I think observance of wildlife and nature should be quiet and peaceful.
Welcome Janice and Janet to our group! Hope everyone has some great ideas on how to help the bison and other endangered species!
Janice, I bet that was very sad to watch the poor baby bison and I, too, wonder what happened to him. It is so unfair what these magnificent creatures have to go through to just 'be'. I hope times are changing for them. They are true survivors in every sense of the word and it would be a tragic loss for this country if they disappeared altogether! Did you read the article Teresa posted on what happened when the wolves were eradicated I believe from Yellowstone many years ago? Very interesting! The changes that took place after they brought them back were wonderful!!!

Welcome Rosemary & Simone to our group!! The more animal lovers the better!! And thank you Rosemary for the link!!
Thank you Nance for the invite. I am never been to Yellowstone, maybe one day I will be lucky enough to see such beauty. The protection and welfare of the Bison and the Wolves that roam Yellowstone are very important causes for me, as all the wildlife in Yellowstone is.
I am happy to be hear amongst like minded friends.
Here is a website link that perhaps you already familiar with however for newcomers this is critical information.
Send a message or call your House and Senate Members >
" Help reinforce the urgency to protect the last wild buffalo left in the country."
" Spread the word to save the herd "
Nance!!!! Hurray you made it!!!
Wow, overnight this group has grown!!! I would like to thank everyone for accepting invitations form Nance, Teresa and myself! Together we all can help these endangered animals! THEY NEED US ALL!!
So welcome newcomers, Leslie, Stanley, Eric, Sajsha, Susan, Erin Susana and Erika! Hope I didn't miss anyone!
And thanks Carrie and Firedancer on the pictures and permission to use them!!
Greenstars for everyone!!
P.S. By the way, for those of you have been to Yellowstone, please post your adventures on the 'Ever Been to Yellowstone' thread!! We can't wait to read all about it!!

Thanks for the invite. I loved Yellowstone -- hiked around there for a week. I was privileged to see two packs of wolves and one solo (from a very far distance back).
Peace and Love.
Thank you for the invitation!!
I'd like to visit the Yellowstone, one day!
Thank you, Nance, for the invitation. This is a great idea for a group, and I look forward to participating.
Thank You for the invite. I have been to Yellowstone. It's a grand and beautiful place and we need to do what we can to protect the wildlife within that beauty.
Thanks Nance for the invite. Havent been to Yellowstone, but the Bison is one of the three Endangered species that I spend alot of time doing what I can to help protect. I hope I can add to this group as well as learn from it.
Glad to be invited, I visited Yellowstone in July of 2005, and it was fantastic. Mosquitos had given us enough grief when we were in Isle Royale, so we avoided them when we backpacked in Yellowstone. To walk in the same area the Grizzly walks, was incredible. We stayed in the Lamar valley for the most part, and actually saw a mother grizzly with two cubs cross the road near us.
If you have never gone, plan it, and do it. Life is too short to miss this one.
Hi Vicky,glad you like the pic. I find all my pics. all over the web and then I tag them myself.Feel free to use any of mine you like and if you need something tagged let me know.
Yes Vicky, You can use any picture I have.I will send more. there are a few sites that have these pictures.I will try to find them for you.
Hi Carrie!!! So glad you made it! I know you will have lots to offer this group, too! I adore the picture of the bison and the Native American's too! Where do you and Firedancer find them? Simply georgeous!!
I'm Carrie..thanks to Vicky for the invite.I haven't yet been to Yellowstone,but would love to go someday.I love animals and anything I can help with in their preservation and protection I'm all for.
Gase, Pat and Jacqui so good to see you! Me, Teresa and Nance never could get in touch with the owner of the Yellowstone Bison group so we decided to create another group to discuss the beauty and the losses of Yellowstone and other neighboring states out west. We need good people like all of you to discuss solutions and ways to help these endangered animals, plants and trees, too! (they all depend on each other) Make yourselves at home and feel free to open discussions or comment on other ones. Post pictures, too! Jacqui, let me know when you go to Yellowstone and I'll go with you!! LOL
THank you Vicky fot the invite, Bless you for this great Work.
Firedance!!! So glad you made it!! I know you will have lots to contribute whether it is clicking or ideas or whatever!!
Teresa!! YAY!! You're here!! If there's something you want to add just go for it!! All help appreciated. I wasn't sure how to get in touch with you and Nance so I went ahead and started. I need to try and figure how to get the 2 bison pics NEXT to each other - not underneath. Hmmm? Any suggestions anyone?

Thank-you and glad to be here.
I didn't realize we had more new members!!! Hello and welcome Venetia, Tracy, June, John, Randall and Gase!! I know you are all animal lovers so anything you'd like to inform the group about these issues feel free to post and enlighten us! Please introduce yourselves to the other members and once again, thank you for joining us!
Hi Steve & Michael!!! So glad to see you and I know you will have lots to contribute! Nance & Teresa (the other hosts) haven't had a chance to make it over yet and we're still trying to set up this group so I really need your help! Steve, since you're familiar with Yellowstone you will be able to give us first hand accounts of what's happening (or not happening) there and Michael, even if you've never been there (or have you?), your input about the goings on in Yellowstone will be immeasurable to our group! Thank you both for joining and we hope to see many posts from you!
