Yellowstone Association


The Yellowstone Association (YA), in partnership with the National Park Service, connects people to Yellowstone National Park and our natural world through education. Founded in 1933, the Yellowstone Association is a nonprofit educational organization that has provided over $65 million in aid to Yellowstone National Park since its inception. The Association is the National Park Service's primary partner in providing educational programs, exhibits, and publications for park visitors.

Operations include 12 educational Park Stores with gross sales of $4.2 million; the YA Institute, which offers more than 600 in-depth courses each year; and a membership program with over 41,000 members. Revenues from sales and memberships allow YA to make an annual cash donation to the National Park Service for education and research in Yellowstone. Ninety cents of every dollar spent goes directly to YA’s educational mission. To learn more, please visit YellowstoneAssociation.org or call 406.848.2400.
