7. Jim Dolan Art

Artist Jim Dolan, sculptor of the Sunrise Bear at Sunrise RV Campground, loves to work with his clients on a very personal basis to develop the artwork that is perfect for them. 

Here an article excerpt about Jim Dolan from the Bozeman Daily Chronicle, Friday, May 13, 2011, by LUANN ROD, Chronicle Staff Writer

"Dolan is a sculptor who has created some of Bozeman's most recognizable public pieces. There are the Canada geese flying through the Gallatin Field airport terminal. There's Rusty, the draft horse residing at the Museum of the Rockies. Dolan's ode to Walt Whitman rests outside Wilson Hall on the Montana State University campus, where Dolan graduated from the agricultural program in 1970. And, there's a herd of elk welcoming visitors to the west side of Bozeman on the First Interstate Bank lawn."

Explore the science and history of Yellowstone at the Children’s Discovery Center. If you’re traveling to Yellowstone Park, this is a great introduction to the whole family.

The Children’s Discovery Center is sure to please learners of all ages. Based on the science in Yellowstone Park and geared towards infants through 8 year olds, the Center is a great introduction to little ones about the wonders of Yellowstone.

Kids can get hands-on here, with a variety of activities from fishing on the fishing bridge, to setting up camp or cooking a meal in a miniature version of The Old Faithful Inn.

The science of Yellowstone can be explored through interactive educational tools such as a geyser that kids can pump up themselves, a fire tower equipped with binoculars and even the sounds and smells one may encounter in the Park.
