The Yellowstone Park Foundation has announced it recently contributed more than $200,000 in new grants to the Park.  These funds will make possible a wide range of projects, including bat research, energy use reduction, and preservation of Yellowstone’s rich heritage.  Specifically, this round of grants provides $10-thousand to enhance the geothermal research network for the study of Yellowstone’s 10-thousand geysers and other features, $15-thousand for a research study on the nearly extinct brown bats, $40-thousand to replace outdated outdoor lighting fixtures in the Mammoth Hot Springs District with energy-efficient LEDs, $60-thousand for historic documentation and preservation in the Old Faithful Lower Hamilton Store built in 1897, $10-thousand to update outdoor educational exhibits to interface with visitors’ smart phones, and $60-thousand to continue the Stop Aquatic Invaders program.  This round of grants closely follows $1.45-million in grants awarded by the foundation in March.
