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.

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
