YPF Gives Yellowstone $600,000

Yellowstone Park Foundation

The Yellowstone Park Foundation, which has been the official fundraising partner for Yellowstone National Park for the past 16 years, announced it is making $600,000 in new project grants to Yellowstone for 2013.  The YPF’s mission and agreement with the National Park Service is to provide funding for specific projects that are above and beyond the daily operations of Yellowstone National Park. Altogether, twelve projects are being funded by these grants this spring.  They include the Slough Creek Native Trout Project, the Yellowstone Raptor Initiative, the Wildlife and Visitor Safety Program, and the Prevent Aquatic Invasive Species Program to name a few. Yellowstone Park Foundation President Karen Kress says these fundraising efforts for the Park are even more necessary because projects like these might otherwise go by the wayside in light of current budget cuts.  She points out that while the grant decisions were made prior to sequestration, they are now quite timely.

    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
