Teton 10 Unveiled

Teton 10

How do you get this generation of young people outdoors?  The Bridger Teton National Forest “Children’s Forest” has just launched a its grant-supported program entitled “Teton 10.” This, says Forest Spokesperson Mary Cernicek, is a Jackson Hole collaborative effort among local organizations to get young folks, grades 3-12, outside and involved in an active lifestyle, connect to their community and confidently engage in the many outdoor opportunities here.  Through Teton 10, Cernicek says youth from any background can choose experiences in ten categories of outdoor-related pursuits with incentives, scholarships, and a sense of accomplishment as their rewards. For each experience completed, members will check off one of the ten categories to earn a reward. Incentives will entice members to participate in a variety of Teton 10 partner experiences.  Cernicek says after a successful pilot summer, the BTNF-“Children’s Forest” held a Teton 10 kickoff event mid-November to bring the project to the community. Over two dozen local organizations are now actively involved in the initiative. Those wishing to participate can find more information, including possible activities at the Teton 10 website.

  • A lunar eclipse, and me without my camera - April 18, 2014
    Monday night, or more accurately early Tuesday morning, there was a total lunar eclipse. And being the experienced nature photographer I am, you’d think I was ready with my camera. But you’d be wrong. The last total lunar eclipse visible in Wyoming was way back in 2009, if I’m not mistaken. So I’ve been looking […]

    U.S. Senator Mike Enzi opened his official campaign headquarters in Cheyenne on Wednesday. Wyoming’s senior senator is seeking his fourth term in the Senate.

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
