Daines Urges Yellowstone, Glacier Superintendents to Assist in Increasing Visitation to Montana’s Less-Visited Parks

U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senator Steve Daines today sent a letter urging Yellowstone Superintendent Cameron Sholly and Glacier Superintendent Jeff Mow to assist in finding solutions to promote visitation in Montana’s less-visited national parks.

“Tourism is one of Montana’s leading economic drivers, which is why I am committed to increasing visitation to all of Montana’s national parks, battlefields, historic sites and more,” Daines wrote. “As we continue to see record-breaking visitation numbers, encouraging visitation to smaller parks in Montana is imperative to both reduce stress on larger parks and promote healthy gateway economies in other regions.”
