The Coca-Cola Company has awarded Grand Teton National Park Foundation $25,000 to support ten weeks of trail repair and historic site maintenance in Grand Teton National Park through the Youth Conservation Program, a privately funded summer work-and-learn opportunity for 16 to 19-year-olds that operates each summer.  The program began in June with twenty-two participants who are accomplishing hands-on work in the park in exchange for a unique education and outdoor adventure.  The Coca-Cola Company offers competitive grants that focus on active, healthy living and programs that connect youth to the outdoors.   Funding will be used to advance this ongoing program that is currently in its seventh season in Grand Teton National Park.
