Greater Yellowstone Coalition

The Greater Yellowstone Coalition was founded in 1983 on a simple premise: an ecosystem will remain healthy and wild only if it is kept whole. GYC has been a pioneer in defining and promoting the concept of ecosystem management. It engages in a wide variety of efforts to improve land management so the area's forests, streams, wildlife and other natural features will flourish for the enjoyment of future generations. In recent years, GYC has been successful in building alliances with communities and non-traditional allies in the Greater Yellowstone ecosystem.

Greater Yellowstone Coalition was a Brainerd Foundation grantee from 2003 to 2010.
