It takes a coalition of people, groups, and agencies working together to achieve success. The Greater Yellowstone Coalition has a history of building successful coalitions, evidenced by these success stories:
In the mid-1990s, numerous land trades were orchestrated to protect public lands from development, including more than 100,000 acres on the Gallatin-Custer National Forest, just outside Yellowstone’s northwest corner.
In 1984, the Wyoming Wilderness Act passed and added more than 1 million acres of Wilderness and wilderness-study areas to the system.
In 2005, legislation was passed to establish the $200 million Wyoming Wildlife & Natural Resources Trust. This trust enhances and conserves wildlife habitat and natural resources.
