Montana’s tourism industry saw more people last year, but fewer dollars.

Jonathan Jarvis, director of the National Park Service, is in Yellowstone National Park to celebrate the centennial of the federal agency.

Jarvis worries a lack of public support could be the end of the institution. He says the future of the National Park Service rests with being relevant to an urban, ethnically diverse and technologically plugged-in population.
