The tight economy and rising prices hit everyone and every business, even a national park. Joining Thane Maynard this week is Ken Barrett from the Yellowstone Park Foundation, talking about the need for private funding to help maintain the beauty and integrity of the park. He also talks about his work with the fish population there and the increase in non-native species which are impacting the ecosystem of the native cutthroat trout.
