The Yellowstone Association Institute is a nonprofit field school operated by the Yellowstone Association in partnership with the National Park Service.

The Institute was founded in 1976 and offers a wide variety of educational programs on the natural and cultural history of Yellowstone. Courses are based at the Lamar Buffalo Ranch Field Campus, the Yellowstone Overlook Field Campus, at park hotels, and in the backcountry.

The Yellowstone Association was founded in 1933 to foster the public's understanding, appreciation, and enjoyment of Yellowstone National Park and its surrounding ecosystem.

In addition to operating the Institute on a break-even basis, the Association manages educational bookstores and a membership program that generate revenues for the National Park Service. Since its inception, the organization has raised more than $24 million for Yellowstone.
