More on Kevin Costner’s ‘Yellowstone One-Fifty’
Kevin Costner is riding high as John Dutton in Yellowstone, but his admiration for the national park and its extraordinary past extends far beyond what is seen on screen. To celebrate the 150th anniversary of Yellowstone National Park, Oscar-winner has created a Fox Nation docuseries called Yellowstone One-Fifty, in which he dives into the park’s awe-inspiring beauty and wildlife. His passion for his project was sparked after learning about its remarkable origin story that dates back to 1872.
“We take a lot for granted, but because people risked a lot, we all have much richer lives,” Costner told People Magazine last fall. “Contributing my time towards the story seeing more light of day is just a tiny thing.”
In four hour-long episodes, Costner follows the footsteps of American geologist Ferdinand Vandeveer Hayden who journeyed across Yellowstone in 1871. This exploration resulted in the establishment of our first national park – an iconic milestone that continues to leave us mesmerized by its grandeur and beauty.
“This was a time in America when all people cared about was what they could extract from the land, what they could get out of it,” Costner says in the first episode. “But these pioneers, they came up with an entirely new idea — a new way of finding value in the land. I want to see what they saw. I want to see what changed them.”
Over the last 150 years, humankind has made immense progress in preserving nature. As a result of this effort, we now have more than 4,000 parks spread across an impressive 2 million miles of protected land and terrain worldwide. Yellowstone: One Fifty with Kevin Costner is streaming exclusively on Fox Nation.
