“A lot of high, positive energy flowing” is how Grand Teton National Park officials are terming the first public meeting regarding management plans for the Moose-Wilson corridor Tuesday night in Jackson.  Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs says around 200 people attended the event in Jackson and shared their ideas and concerns with park planners.  She says there were a lot of opinions and different perspectives represented at the gathering. Those  perspectives were linked to how the different people use the area – whether it is for hiking, climbing, going to the Lawrence Rockefeller Preserve, learning about the cultural resources like the dude ranching history or the Murie Ranch, and definitely wildlife-watching.   Says  Skaggs, “I think that is one of the common themes that people are concerned about.”  Skaggs says ideas were recorded on flip charts while other people submitted written comments or entered them onto laptop computers made available at the event.  Skaggs says the next step will be to identify and develop the preliminary alternatives for the Moose-Wilson corridor is to be managed in the future. Skaggs emphasizes, “We want constant contact with people during this process.”Skaggs says people may go to the park planning website between now and February sixth to review the topics being researched and offer input.  Then, she says, the information will be compiled into alternatives to be completed in March and presented to the public at another open house in late summer.
