$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.

  • Happy Thanksgiving, Wyoming! - November 27, 2014
    I know, a show about giving thanks on Thanksgiving is pretty predictable. But it doesn’t feel right to overlook the importance of this day. However, because this is a program about the outdoors, I’ll just talk about the things in the outdoors I’m thankful for. There’s plenty of it. Especially here in Wyoming. We’ve got […]
  • Pelts are nearing prime conditions - November 26, 2014
    The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer. It’s the amount of daylight, and not the temperature, that causes wild animals to grow longer, thicker coats. If you’re a predator hunter or a trapper, that’s your cue. The pelts are coming into their prime right now, but that doesn’t mean they’re at […]

  • Tame that recoil - November 25, 2014
    You don’t have to put up with nasty recoil when you’re hunting. Even if you’re hunting our state’s bigger animals, like elk, moose, or even bison, today’s technology can take a lot of the sting out of your hunting rifle. A friend told me he developed a bad flinch while sighting in his .300 Win […]
