Yellowstone Corral Projects

In 2008, YPF donors -- led by ARCH Venture Partners employees and friends -- helped fund a partnership that brings rangers and volunteers together for an annual week-long work project. Since then, volunteers and Yellowstone staff have contributed long hours on a major corral restoration project in the Park. Patrolling the backcountry and monitoring trails activity and scientific field work requires support from stock animals kept at operational bases near developed areas. With additional help from the Wounded Warrior Project/Disabled Sports USA volunteers since 2009, significant corral improvements have made rangers’ work and stock alike safer and more efficient. The partners rebuilt the West Corral in fall 2011, and in 2012 and 2013 volunteers and Park staff worked to rebuild corrals at the Lake Ranger Station. Advance donations are welcome as project materials are funded by private donations.
