Sign up for weekly updates on 30th anniversary of devastating 1988 Yellowstone fires

In 1988, wildfires scorched nearly 800,000 acres in Yellowstone National Park, forcing evacuations, changing the park’s landscape for years to come and altering how fires are managed and fought.

On Aug. 26, we’ll publish a section looking back at the summer of 1988 and its impact.

Throughout the summer, we’ll be compiling coverage of the 30th anniversary in a weekly email. It will include a look back into the Billings Gazette's archives, photo galleries, new reporting on the fires' impact on Yellowstone, and stories from people who were there.

The newsletter will be delivered to your inbox Monday mornings through September.
