WYED Center

Welcome to the WYED Center

In 2011, we purchased an 11,500 sq. ft. building at 239 Firehole Ave. (the corner of Highway 20 and Electric St.) and established the WYED Center (WYEDC or The Center) as the central location for our operations. Our Board of Directors conducts business here, and the multi-use building enhances our local economy by offering rental space to a few residents and businesses and a wide variety of community and commercial events.
The Center is also home to the Yellowstone Studies Center (YSC). As operations manager for the YSC, we provide the venue, educational opportunities and support services for elementary, middle and high school, college, and university students, teachers and professors as well as other educational groups who take part in experiential teaching and learning in West Yellowstone and Yellowstone National Park.

We thank our very special local donors and members for their many contributions to the Center.
World renown photographer, Chris Balmer and his company Perfect Light Camera and Supply of Idaho Falls, ID, contributed many of the outstanding photographs that adorn the walls of the Center. Visit perfectlightstore.com
Northern Rocky Mountain Economic Development District (NRMEDD) continues to assist us with many of our economic development efforts at the Center. Visit www.nrmedd.org

Payment of West Yellowstone Resort Tax Bond for Special Events
In support of our mission, we’ll consider partnering with an individual or organization sponsoring a special event in the Town of West Yellowstone or the surrounding Hebgen Lake Basin. We’ll pay the required $1500 West Yellowstone Resort Tax Bond. In return, the sponsor individual or organization will pay us an amount of 10% of the Bond ($150) for the use of the funds and complete or fulfill all other documentation or requirements of the Town to sponsor this event. Both payments will be made at the same time that an event’s Exposition License Application is submitted to the town. For more info, contact John or click and complete the Request For Bond Payment and email it to John.
