Bear boxes are a proven method to help minimize conflict and keep bears and people safe. Yet, less than 25% of the campsites in Yellowstone's roadside campgrounds have these critical bear boxes installed!
YOU can make a difference today by donating to the Yellowstone Bear Box Fund or by creating your own fundraiser for this vital program!
Our goal is to raise $37,500 (that covers the cost of 25 bear boxes in Yellowstone).
We thank you and Yellowstone’s black and grizzly bears thank you!

Create Your Own Fundraiser to Sponsor a Bear Box in Yellowstone!
You (or a group of friends, family, co-workers) can sponsor an entire Bear Box for $1,500! Once you reach $1,500, we will arrange to install a bear box in a Yellowstone campground in your honor. Your name, or your group’s name, will be engraved on a metal plate that will be permanently affixed to the box. See an example here.
