Phase II of GTNP Land Sale Completed

December 28, 2012 Grand Teton National Park, Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming No Comments
Governor Matt Mead

Governor Matt Mead applauded the U.S. Department of the Interior and the National Park Service for finalizing the purchase of an 86-acre parcel of state land. This is the second sale of state land inside Grand Teton National Park and is part of an agreement made in 2010. The $16 million from the federal government will go to the Wyoming Permanent Land Fund, which can be used to purchase other land for the state.  In acknowledging the sale, Mead said, “The best outcome for all involved is for this land to be part of the National Park. I appreciate the work of Secretary Ken Salazar and Director Jon Jarvis in finalizing this second sale and I look forward to working with them to complete the final transactions.” The sale of the land was sought in consideration of Wyoming constitution calling for the State Board of Land Commissioners to use state trust lands in such a way as to realize the largest possible proceeds for Wyoming schools.

  • Find some new places to fish - April 16, 2014
    Instead of fishing the same old places this spring, do something different. Find a new honey hole. You don’t have to go to the same place every time you go fishing. When you find a good spot to fish, it’s nice to know you can go back there and catch fish. But if your honey […]
