Yellowstone, the world’s first national park, stretches across parts of Idaho, Montana and Wyoming.

The stamp, previewed April 25, is one of 16 on a pane that will commemorate the National Park Service’s 100th anniversary. USPS revealed the stamp images individually throughout April.

Stamps honoring Theodore Roosevelt National Park, San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park, Mount Rainier National Park, Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park and Kenilworth Park and Aquatic Gardens were revealed last week.

Earlier this month, the Postal Service previewed stamps showcasing Haleakalā National Park, Gulf Islands National Seashore, Grand Canyon National Park, Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve, Everglades National Park, Carlsbad Caverns National Park, Bandelier National Monument, Assateague Island National Seashore, Arches National Park and Acadia National Park. 

The full pane will be dedicated June 2 at the World Stamp Show in New York City. The show, which is the world’s largest philatelic event, is held in the United States once every decade.

Individuals are asked to spread the news on social media using the hashtags #NPSStamps, #FindYourPark and #NPS100.
