Wolf packs once roamed from the Arctic tundra to Mexico, but in 1973 the northern Rocky Mountain wolf was listed as an endangered species. The Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem was designated the main recovery area and from 1995 to 1997, 41 wild wolves from Canada were released in Yellowstone. Several packs have established a home in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
The upper portion of the blanket shows the Hayden Valley. This valley contains the largest herds of prey for the wolves. There are large herds of deer, bison and the wolves main source of food, the elk. The cool colors of blue, white and grey in the blanket reflect the amazing diversity of colors found in our first National Park.
