Yellowstone Park Foundation

The Yellowstone Park Foundation which is the official fundraising partner of the park, recently announced $1.4-million in new grants it is presenting to the Park.  These funds will make possible a wide range of projects, most notably, a native species research and conservation project. The foundation has committed $1-million to help the Park launch a comprehensive Native Fish Conservation Program to take proactive steps to restore the Yellowstone Lake ecosystem by reducing the number of non-native lake trout and so restore the native cutthroat trout population. The Foundation’s $1-million contribution is being matched dollar for dollar by federal funding.
