The public closure at Baxter’s Pinnacle and Descent Gully near the mouth of Cascade Canyon has been lifted. Grand Teton National Park Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs explains that this area closure went into effect on May first to protect an active peregrine falcon nest. Due in part to the protection provided by this wildlife closure, the adult falcons successfully reared and fledged one chick. Seasonal and temporary closures for wildlife protection are common in Grand Teton National Park to protect both wildlife and park users. Entering a posted wildlife closure is a violation that can result in a citation and fine under the code of federal regulations.
