Visitor Center

Grand Teton National Park is hosting its second annual Grand Teton Film Festival September 13 thought 15 at the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center auditorium in Moose. Modeled after similar events like the Telluride and Banff film festivals, the festival featuresa slate of movies that profile environmental issues and highlight protected areas from the Arctic to the Andes and Asia.  Each film explores the human experience in the natural world and profiles remarkable natural landscapes. Among some of the special features of the festival is a screening of the 1922 silent feature, “Nanook of the North” at 7:00 pm Thursday, “Mi Chacra” which depicts a year in the life of a Peruvian farmer at 7:00 pm Friday, and “People of a Feather” which is a 21st century “Nanook of the North” story.  All films will be shown in the Discovery Center’s 150-seat auditorium on a large-format screen with state-of-the-art projector and sound system. The film festival is free, made possible through funding from the Grand Teton National Park Foundation and local corporate sponsors.

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
