$1-million Donated To GTNP

GTNPF

Grand Teton National Park Foundation, the primary fundraising partner for Grand Teton National Park, donated nearly $1 million to the park in the past twelve months to fund projects and programming in Grand Teton.  The projects spanned a wide range of enhancements and education that connect visitors to Grand Teton and improve resources including construction of the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center auditorium, creation of a user-friendly website that promotes Grand Teton’s history, geology, and wild communities, funding for a teen trail crew made up of 16 to 19-year-old Latino students, as well as leadership and internship programs for diverse high-school and college students, seventy-one bear-resistant food storage boxes for park campsites, critical funding for wildlife research that focuses on a wide variety of park species, an air quality monitoring station on the Kelly campus of Teton Science Schools, water bottle refilling stations in eight locations in the park, and funds to assist in whitebark pine restoration. Park Superintendent Mary Gibson Scott says the park would be hard pressed to accomplish some of the park’s critical projects and programs without the support of the foundation.

  • Be ready for bumps, scrapes, cuts and more - October 30, 2014
    Being prepared for the worst is never a bad idea. However, if you carry everything you might need for any emergency, you won’t have room for your tent or sleeping bag. A first aid kit needs to be light and compact, or it’ll be one of the first things you toss out of the pack […]
