The Yellowstone Trail Association is a membership association with dues to cover postage, printing, web site, and a bunch of miscellaneous costs.  Almost all labor and travel costs are supported by the officers and Board members.   Your donation of either time or money helps the YTA make progress to reach more people to motivate and satisfy their interest in the Yellowstone Trail and its history.  Perhaps there will be the chance to plan regional meetings if we have the basic resources.  Or maybe a tour of parts of the Trail led by a knowledgeable member?

Any amount of time or money will be helpful and might motivate something new!

Or, your donations could be designated for a special project (that we can design together) or for our Interpretive Sign Program.  

Throughout the route of the Trail, from Puget Sound to Plymouth Rock,  the Route and its history needs to be explained to  locals and travelers alike.  One valuable way of doing this is to erect Interpretive signs similar to such signs as you frequently find in parks and at historical sights.  Their individual cost is something like $700.  While the graphics and ordering process can be provided by the Association (through donated time!), your donation can help local groups meet the about $700 cost of the sign and its frame.

Local individuals and groups are needed to identify proper locations, to arrange for permissions, install and maintain the signs.  If the local individuals and groups cannot afford the cost of the sign the Association will do its best to cover the remaining cost.
