Sending Cheerful Seasons Greetings from all of us at Yellowstone Forever
During this holiday season, we would like to send you a warm thanks for the essential role you’ve played this year in preserving, protecting, and enhancing Yellowstone National Park. As snow silently falls, blanketing the park, we reflect on the past year and all that was accomplished through your unwavering passion and generous support!
In 2023, Yellowstone Forever members helped:
- Expand operations of Yellowstone Tribal Heritage Center for its second season, growing the programming which featured 34 Tribal presenters representing 16 associated Tribes;
- Support the decades-long crucial work of the Yellowstone Wolf Project to collect data and educate visitors;
- Transfer wild Yellowstone bison to Tribes through the Bison Conservation & Transfer Program and assist with the Bison Tribal Internship program;
- Install 369 bear-proof storage boxes in campsites throughout the park to protect bears and people, as well as continue bear monitoring and management;
- Restore native trout to the ecosystem by increasing abundance and sizes of Yellowstone cutthroat trout in Yellowstone Lake;
- Educate youth and visitors through exceptional educational experiences offered by the National Park Service and the Yellowstone Forever Institute;
- …and much, much more!
We look forward to working with you in 2024 to continue to ensure Yellowstone National Park remains protected and preserved, forever.
Wishing you all the peace and joy of the holiday season and a bright year ahead.
