August 2010

In This Issue

This summer is an exciting time of new beginnings for Yellowstone and the Yellowstone Park Foundation.  Starting later this month, Park visitors will be able to experience Old Faithful like they’ve never experienced it before, because the famous geyser’s story will be told like it has never been told before, at the brand-new Old Faithful Visitor Education Center.  At the same time we are celebrating this result of YPF’s largest contribution to Yellowstone, we are welcoming our new leader who will guide us in our work to address the Park’s future needs, challenges, and opportunities.

Please Help Us Celebrate on August 25!

View of Old Faithful from new Visitor Education Center

The Old Faithful Visitor Education Center will open to the public on August 25, 2010, and you can be part of the excitement!  You are invited to attend the dedication ceremony that day, and help celebrate this exceptional achievement.  The state-of-the-art Old Faithful Visitor Education Center has been many years in the making.  It all began in 1999, when the Yellowstone Park Foundation’s board of directors answered the Park’s call to help create a center of learning near the heart of Yellowstone National Park – Old Faithful Geyser.

The Moose & YCC: A Lasting Legacy

YCC members work on Mt. Holmes Trail 

Since 1989, the million-plus men and women of the Moose fraternal organization have provided their support to the thoughtful restoration and preservation of our nation’s first national park.  They have generously funded the Yellowstone Youth Conservation Corps (YCC), a residential work and education program for young people aged 15 to 18. It’s clear that Yellowstone and its many visitors benefit from the hard work and dedication of YCC participants, but the intense summer of work can also provide a life-changing experience for individual crew members, like Liesel Marron.
