The Yellowstone Park Foundation


The World's First National Park
Since Yellowstone was created 129 years ago it has served as a universal symbol of wildness, mystery, and natural beauty. As the world's first national park. Yellowstone's treasures become more significant with each generation. Not only does it have three of the world's top trout fishing streams, it also supports the highest concentration of free-roaming wildlife in the lower 48 states. Yellowstone - A Park at Risk - It seems unimaginable that Yellowstone's unique resources might be at risk, but they are.

Mounting pressures, including increased visitor use and shrinking federal budgets, make it more and more difficult to care for Yellowstone's spectacular resources. In the Madison, Gallatin, Firehole and Yellowstone Rivers, native fish, like the westslope cutthroat, have been virtually eliminated by introduced non-native species.

Unfortunately, the Park Service does not have the money to address situations like this in a timely manner. Soon it will be too late and catching a native trout may be just a memory.

The Yellowstone Park Foundation

We are a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving, protecting, and enhancing Yellowstone National Park. We receive no government funding but rely solely on the generous support of private citizens, foundations, and corporations to ensure that Yellowstone's great gifts to the world never diminish.

The Foundation's Goals

Among the many projects we have funded is a westslope cutthroat conservation project to restore this "species at risk" to its native habitat within the Park. The Foundation urges you to become a Friend of Yellowstone with your tax-deductible donation. Please help to preserve and protect an international angling treasure.
