Grand Teton’s Superintendent Retiring

Mary Gibson Scott

Grand Teton National Park Superintendent Mary Gibson Scott has announced she will be retiring from the National Park Service November 8th.  This marks the end of a 33-year career in the park service for Scott.  Scott says she and her husband, Roger plan to stay in Jackson, be involved in the community and generally enjoy the area.  As Superintendent, Scott says she has not been able to do as much hiking, climbing, fly fishing and other activities to be able to enjoy the park.  Scott says, “Being Superintendent of Grand Teton does not lend itself to being able to spend a lot of time in the back country, and that is first and foremost what Roger and I tend to do.”  Scott says through her ten seasons here, she believes she has achieved many of the things she set out to do in the park.  Additionally, Scott served as chairperson for the Greater Yellowstone Coordinating Committee from 2008 to 2010. That committee includes federal land managers from national parks, national forests and national wildlife refuges across the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. She also just stepped down as the chair of the Yellowstone Ecosystem Subcommittee of the Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee; a multi-jurisdictional organization focused on the successful recovery and conservation of grizzly bears across a 22-million-acre natural area that spans three states.
