2016 Annual Report March 1, 2016–February 28, 2017


Our bold new vision is already being realized as we partner with the park to create opportunities for all people to experience, enhance, and preserve Yellowstone forever. 1


LETTER FROM THE CHAIRMAN AND PRESIDENT & CEO As we look back on what we’ve accomplished this past year, we’re humbled by the achievements of our legacy organizations, the Yellowstone Association and the Yellowstone Park Foundation. Thanks to their steadfast leadership, the strong foundation they built has been instrumental in getting us where we are today—a single nonprofit that stands ready to ensure Yellowstone remains forever.

We’re excited to build upon the success of our inaugural year: a year in which we launched our new website, ended ahead of budget, and partnered with our Young Patrons Advisory Council to engage with the next generation of park stewards. Most importantly, we look forward to providing even more support for priority park projects. Yellowstone National Park is our number one priority, and the park’s needs are our needs.

This past year marks our first as a joined force for Yellowstone National Park. Our bold new vision is already being realized as we partner with the park to create opportunities for all people to experience, enhance, and preserve Yellowstone forever. In 2016, Yellowstone Forever raised more money at year-end than both legacy organizations combined raised the previous year. We’ve also strengthened the ways in which we connect people to Yellowstone, through significant growth in our social media audience and participation in our Institute programming— including a 50% increase in youth programs.

We’re proud of what we’ve accomplished for the park this past year—and we couldn’t do any of this good work without you. Thank you for continuing to support our organization and Yellowstone National Park. We look forward to celebrating Yellowstone’s 150th anniversary alongside our supporters in 2022!

Kay Yeager, Chairman Yellowstone Forever

Heather White, President & CEO Yellowstone Forever

LETTER FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT From the celebration of the National Park Service Centennial to the merger of the Yellowstone Association and the Yellowstone Park Foundation, it’s been an eventful year for Yellowstone National Park. We’re proud to work with Yellowstone Forever, our official nonprofit partner. The benefit of working with just one organization isn’t just about simplification—it’s about magnification. Yellowstone Forever is a singular nonprofit whose mission of engagement and support for the park will ensure Yellowstone is protected and continues to inspire for generations to come.

respond to park needs. Last year, we received a total of $6,876,504 in cash and $8,096,661 of in-kind support that will benefit park visitor enjoyment, education, and preservation, including a new sustainable pathway at Old Faithful and an expanded youth campus for Yellowstone’s future stewards. I’m excited about what we’ve accomplished together this past year—and for what we will accomplish in the future. On behalf of all of Yellowstone National Park’s employees, we thank you for your support of the world’s first national park.

Yellowstone National Park is already benefiting from this important partnership, thanks to Yellowstone Forever’s increased capacity to fund priority projects and more quickly Dan Wenk, Superintendent Yellowstone National Park 2

Native Fish Restoration More than 40 animal species in Yellowstone National Park depend on very special partners to survive: native fish. Cutthroat trout and Arctic grayling sustain countless animals year-round, including bears, osprey, river otters, mink, and 20 types of birds. But Yellowstone is losing these native fish quickly. Centuries ago, some four million cutthroat trout swam the crystal waters of Yellowstone Lake. Today, a dangerous combination of predatory lake trout, whirling disease, and drought are decimating

Yellowstone’s only native trout. Less than 10% of that historical population survives. Our native fish programs have helped reverse this staggering decline. In 2016, gill-netting efforts removed more than 350,000 non-native lake trout from Yellowstone Lake, bringing the total number of lake trout that have been removed from Yellowstone Lake to more than 2.3 million.

Yellowstone Wolf Program The majestic gray wolf roamed freely in Yellowstone when the park was designated in 1872. Just a few decades later, this great predator had all but disappeared. Today, some 100 wolves reside within the park’s boundaries, thanks to a massive restoration project that began in 1995. But that work is far from over. Yellowstone’s nationally acclaimed wolf program monitors the park’s wolves and safely manages the visitors who flock to see them. Last year, Yellowstone Forever provided $489,149 in support of this effort that includes ongoing monitoring of wolf packs and the effects of returning this top-level carnivore to the park’s vast ecosystem. Yellowstone Forever has contributed almost $6.7 million since the Yellowstone Wolf Program launched in 1996.

Wildlife and Visitor Safety Program Many bear jams take place in a summer season, causing traffic accidents, potential harm to visitors, and potential distress to wildlife. With over 4.25 million visits through the entrance stations of Yellowstone last year, the need for visitor and wildlife safety education is more important than ever. The Visitor and Wildlife Safety Education project provides resource education, protects people and animals in the park, and preserves visitor opportunities to view wildlife in natural conditions.

Thanks to the funding Yellowstone Forever contributed to this program—a total of $123,572—Yellowstone National Park was able to hire seasonal resource education rangers to help manage wildlife jams and provide wildlife safety demonstrations, talks, and programs to visitors from all over the world.

Roosevelt Arch Restoration Project Just in time for the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service in 2016, Yellowstone’s North Entrance and the adjacent community of Gardiner, Montana, received a much-needed makeover. Known as the Gardiner Gateway Project, the project’s goal was to mitigate traffic congestion at the Roosevelt Arch and make improvements to the surrounding environment. Over 16 partners—including Yellowstone Forever, gateway businesses, government agencies, and tourism bureaus—joined

together to make this dream a reality. Since work began, improvements have included a new Yellowstone Entrance Plaza, the Arch Park stage, expanded parking, new public facilities, and the opening of the Roosevelt Arch pedestrian portals. In 2016, Yellowstone Forever contributed $304,747; this was the final contribution for the project, bringing the grand total of support to $2,326,584. The project was unveiled at the National Park Service Centennial celebration on August 16, 2016.


Canyon Trails and Overlooks Project The 1,000-foot-deep Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone offers visitors spectacular views, the opportunity to learn about the park’s fascinating geology, and walking trails for hikers of all abilities. In the 1930s, a series of 10 overlooks, including the staircases and five miles of pathways, were constructed along the precipice of the canyon. For nearly 80 years, the infrastructure in this area has remained strong, but sadly, many of those trails have fallen into disrepair. Substantial foot traffic, severe weather, and debilitating soil erosion have all taken their toll. The Canyon Trails and Overlooks Project provides significant rehabilitation improvements for these overlooks, including safety and accessibility upgrades, enhanced infrastructure and signage, and the construction of new walkways to connect the historic overlooks. In 2016, work on this multi-year project began at Inspiration Point, with $1.6 million in funding provided by ConocoPhillips. The project was also awarded $250,000 from the Partners in Preservation campaign, sponsored by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and American Express.

The Yellowstone Heritage and Research Center The Yellowstone Heritage and Research Center (HRC) is the park’s historic museum and research library dedicated to preserving irreplaceable cultural artifacts and rare memorabilia. This state-ofthe-art facility houses more than 720,000 museum items, millions of historic documents, and a research library with more than 20,000 books and periodicals. Last year, Yellowstone Forever contributed $139,663 to operations and projects at the HRC. This contribution provides the salary for a park archivist, two librarians, housing for research library and museum volunteers, maintains the HRC periodicals and catalog of Yellowstone books, and also sustains a curatorial internship with Stanford University. A portion of the contribution helps HRC staff rehouse the park’s natural history specimens, which were treated with arsenic and other heavy metals by past taxidermists. Staff have almost completed rehousing and labeling several hundred specimens from this collection—creating a safer environment for staff and researchers.

This project is focused on replacing existing fencing at Stephens Creek that is beyond repair. The fence is used to corral the Yellowstone horse herd used for National Park Service staff, as well as assist with the needs of the Yellowstone bison operation. Phase I of the project focused on replacing fencing on the West and East horse pastures.

Led by a fundraising call from ARCH Venture Partners, volunteers completely self-funded this project and put in hours of work at Stephens Creek. Through monetary and in-kind donations, ARCH Venture Partners and the Warfighters group contributed $87,918 to complete Phase I of this important project.

BeRnzomatic Propane Recycler Every season, thousands of campers discard propane cylinders. This past year, Yellowstone Forever partnered with Bernzomatic—maker of handheld torches and fuel cylinders—to dedicate a new propane-cylinder reclaim machine in Yellowstone National Park. The new machine removes residual propane from fuel cylinders to power its own operation before crushing the steel for safe recycling.

left behind by park guests at an event at Old Faithful. This past summer, the mobile machine traveled between Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks to crush canisters, avoiding the annual transport of hazardous, pressurized materials. To date, Yellowstone Forever has contributed $220,000 on behalf of this project.

On June 4, 2016, officials unveiled this state-of-the-art machine and demonstrated how it recycles non-refillable fuel cylinders

Michelin Old Faithful Trail Project Phase II Sustainable solutions come full circle in this partner project with Michelin North America. The circle begins when Michelin donates tires to Yellowstone’s fleet of vehicles. When the tires reach their end of life, they are recycled into a new material called “Flexi-Pave,” which is then used to resurface an environmentally friendly pathway at Old Faithful. Ten Michelin North America employees won a contest to travel to Yellowstone to help install the trail, along with the corporation’s famous mascot, the Michelin Man. Crews brought an additional 4,610 square feet of Flexi-Pave pathway to this heavily trafficked trail system with the help of over 1,500 end-of-life tires. The new pathway allows moisture from rain and snow to permeate naturally into the sensitive geyser basin rather than causing damaging runoff—which helps ensure Old Faithful’s eruptions will remain faithful for years to come.
