“Greening” Retrofit Of Mammoth Clinic Celebrated

Completion of a partnership effort to make the Mammoth Clinic in Yellowstone National Park more energy efficient was celebrated with a ribbon cutting ceremony Wednesday afternoon, May 14.

New, energy efficient Andersen Windows were recently installed in the 1960s era stone structure, one of three medical facilities in the park. The $20,000 donation is part of a multi-year partnership between Andersen Corporation and the Yellowstone Park Foundation.

On hand for the celebration were Andersen Corporation CEO Jay Lund, Yellowstone Park Foundation Board Chair Kay Yeager, Deb Brown of Medcor and Yellowstone National Park Deputy Superintendent Steve Iobst.

In 2011, Andersen donated replacement windows for cabins at the Lamar Buffalo ranch, which resulted in a 50-percent reduction in energy use. The company has also agreed to donate the windows for a new employee dormitory at Old Faithful. Construction is set to begin this fall.

This is one of many important partnerships which support Yellowstone’s ongoing effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and electricity, fossil fuel, and water consumption.

Dog Hooked to Travois for Transporting Goods.

Some groups of Shoshone Indians, who adapted to a mountain existence, chose not to acquire the horse. These included the Sheep Eaters, or Tukudika, who used dogs to transport food, hides, and other provisions. The Sheep Eaters lived in many locations in Yellowstone.
