Yellowstone National Park may well be the first national park in the entire world. It has long upheld the values of preserving the natural beauty of the American landscape, and protecting the rare species that live there. Unfortunately, however, owing to the park's age, many of its structures do not live up to those values.

That is all soon to change, thanks in part to Toyota, and to Hennebery Eddy Architects of Oregon.

Toyota has donated $1 million toward the construction of a new Yellowstone Youth Campus, slated to replace the older Youth Conservation Corps building. The new youth campus, designed by Hennebery Eddy Architects, is projected to be the first in a national park to achieving Living Building Challenge Certification.

"The new Yellowstone Youth Campus is an opportunity to support the conservation principles of the National Park Service while reinforcing Toyota's commitment to the environment," said Toyota Motor North America Environmental General Manager Kevin Butt. "We hope this environmental learning center will inspire and empower future leaders in building a more culturally aware, ecologically responsible and regenerative future."
