JDR Parkway Anniversary Celebrated

JDR Ded.

The John D. Rockefeller Memorial Parkway Saturday marks its 40th anniversary with a series of programs to recognize the philanthropy of Mr. Rockefeller that made the 24-thousand acre reserve and eight national parks possible.  The day’s celebration begins with a program at 10:00 am at the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center in Moose merging the past with the future through presentations by local Latino high school students taking part in an outreach program; an announcement about a new program that will connect the Jackson Hole Class of 2016 with Grand Teton National Park and the John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway; an announcement about a scholarship competition for local students, and a keynote address by Clay James—retired CEO of Grand Teton Lodge Company and current liaison between the Rockefeller Senior Associates and the Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserve—who will recount his experiences working with Mr. Rockefeller and the Rockefeller family. Cake and refreshments will also be provided, complements of the Grand Teton Association.
