Welcome, YPF Friend, to Yellowstone eNews!

 
In This Issue
As Yellowstone's peak season comes to a close, it's time to reflect on the past few months and start planning ahead for next summer. In this issue, we've included a brief wolf population update and, in light of tragic bear attacks this past summer, a reminder about how you can help with bear safety efforts. Looking ahead, check out some new videos we funded on planning your next visit to the park, and read about becoming a fly-fishing volunteer! Finally, you may notice a slight change in the look of Yellowstone eNews. We have adapted the layout to be more mobile-friendly so that you can read it on-the-go from your smartphone!
 

Yellowstone Wolf Population Update

Yellowstone Wolf Population Update
 LEARN MORE  > 
If there's one thing about Yellowstone's wolf population we can always count on, it's change. From dramatic wolf pack rivalries, to disease outbreaks and the impacts of extreme weather, there is constantly something new to learn or investigate. These wild wolves offer us a unique opportunity to see the forces of nature in action.

 

Volunteers Help Protect Native Trout

Volunteers Help Protect Native Trout

It's no secret that Yellowstone's native cutthroat trout are in trouble. Within the past decade, trout in and around the Park have faced growing threats from invasive species -- especially lake trout -- as well as disease and prolonged drought. The National Park Service is working hard, with the help of volunteers and YPF donors, to improve the outlook for Yellowstone's famous cutthroat populations.

 

My Day with the Youth Conservation Corps

My Day with the Youth Conservation Corps

Following a brief visit to the Yellowstone Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) facility in July, I was invited to join a YCC crew for a day, and I thought it sounded like fun. As the new Projects & Grants Manager for the Yellowstone Park Foundation, I wanted to get out in the field to learn more about this annual program we fund, while proving to myself I can still do dirty work.
