The Rocky Mountain Science & Sustainability Network (RMSSN) Cultural Team of 2016 was comprised of a group of university students that represented a cross-section of different identities and perspectives. As different ethnicities and cultures evoke different perspectives, a myriad of solutions to a problem can arise. We were tasked to make photo points that would be recognizable and simple to replicate at Yellowstone National Park. We established our photo points to show the way people use the landscape and how its culture has changed from past uses. Furthermore, to track climate change, population demands, historical and cultural preservation.
