New National Park Health Initiative Successful

GTNP Sign

Grand Teton National Park and St. John’s Medical Center declare a successful first season for their Active Trails Wellness program, focused on park-based activities. Between Memorial Day and Labor Day, over 350 local participants logged time hiking, biking, canoeing, climbing and other pursuits, for a total of 3,861 hours of outdoor fitness in Grand Teton. Patty Schneider became the season winner and earned the grand prize of a night’s stay at Jackson Lake Lodge in a Classic Cottage room with breakfast in the Mural Room. Grants from Wyoming Department of Health and the National Park Foundation supplied many of the participants with subsidized park passes, a can of bear spray, and free transportation from the town of Jackson for monthly ranger-led hikes that explored trails around Phelps, Jenny and Taggart lakes.
