The Yellowstone Park Foundation is donating $600,000 for projects in Yellowstone National Park.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports in a story published Sunday the money will be used for 12 projects selected for this spring’s grant cycle.

Yellowstone National Park saw its budget cut by $1.75 million due to across-the-board federal budget cuts, commonly known as sequestration.

“These grants from the Yellowstone Park Foundation will help us maximize our resources that are even more limited than before sequestration, so that these important projects can move forward,” said Yellowstone Superintendent Dan Wenk.
