Yellowstone National Park has one of the most incredible ecosystems in the world. It’s home to more than 10,000 thermal features, the largest concentration of mammals in the lower 48 states, and endless rivers, lakes, and trails. But this ecosystem needs constant protection from human interference, invasive species and more. Yellowstone Forever funds projects that conserve native wildlife, biodiversity, and contribute to a healthy and resilient environment for the future.
Yellowstone National Park has 1,100 miles of trails and boardwalks visited by approximately 4 million visitors each year. There is a constant need to rehabilitate and restore trails, reduce human impacts, and protect Yellowstone’s wildlife for the benefit of this and future generations.
Yellowstone Forever funds projects that preserve, rehabilitate, and restore Yellowstone’s resources and recreational amenities in order to ensure visitors are able to enjoy the park’s great treasures.
Yellowstone National Park is a living classroom, with endless opportunities to learn about everything from Native American history to hydrothermal chemistry! Ensuring park visitors get the most out of their Yellowstone experience takes a lot of work and dedication on the part of Yellowstone’s rangers and staff.
