Do you feel optimistic? Yellowstone Forever, the official nonprofit partner of Yellowstone National Park, has high hopes for the future. So hopeful that he offers a $1500 annual pass that won’t become active until 2172.

The Inheritance Pass is part of a fundraising effort for Yellowstone Forever. This year marks the park’s 150th anniversary, so the pass is a nod to the next 150 years. It’s meant to be passed on as an heirloom, but it also comes with an ongoing annual pass so you can enjoy the park in your lifetime.

Yellowstone Forever funds wildlife conservation projects, trail maintenance efforts, and sustainability efforts.

Yellowstone, the oldest national park in the United States, is a natural paradise of peaks, forests, valleys and geysers. It is famous for its bison and other wildlife and welcomes millions of visitors each year.

The Legacy Pass is a fun idea, but it also asks nature lovers to think deeply about the future and what it might be for their descendants. What will it take to secure Yellowstone’s future for another 150 years? This is an open question, and it is one that needs to be considered.
