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.
