Yellowstone's Strategic Plan for Sustainability

Yellowstone National Park was established in 1872 as the world's first National Park, and now, as a biosphere reserve and World Heritage Site, it remains an example for excellence in environmental management. Yellowstone strives to demonstrate exemplary leadership for sustainability and climate change mitigation by managing operations and adapting facilities in a sustainable manner to preserve our resources for this and future generations.
