$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.

    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
