100+ Years of Supporting Yellowstone


ConocoPhillips has supported Yellowstone National Park since 1917, providing millions of dollars in direct funding, as well as leadership support, to help protect and preserve this national treasure.

Our contributions have improved the park for the enjoyment of the more than 3 million people who visit Yellowstone each year, attracted to the geysers and hot springs, free-roaming wildlife, trout-fishing streams and National Historic Landmarks such as the Old Faithful Inn and the Roosevelt Arch.

Throughout the past 100 years, ConocoPhillips has supported the park by:

  • Restoring more than 1,000 miles of trails.
  • Funding for repair and stabilization of Inspiration Point, restoration of the Roosevelt Arch, and protective equipment for fire department personnel.
  • Helping preserve the park’s history through support of the Haynes Photo Shop, Old Faithful Visitor Education Center, and Ranger Museum.
  • Serving as the park’s only major supplier of motor fuels to visitors 1917- 2008.
