Leave Antlers In The Park

GTNP Sign

The summer season is beginning to take shape in Grand Teton National Park with additional facilities opening and the number of people passing through the entrances increasing now.  Park Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs says park visitors need to keep in mind that the wildlife is still migrating near the roads; and this year they are bringing with them something that may be very tempting for visitors to pick up illegally.  Skaggs says if visitors find antlers as they travel through the park, they must be left in place.  Says Skaggs, “Collecting antlers or horns or any other animal parts in Grand Teton National Park is prohibited.   It is prohibited for anyone to collect anything except pictures.”   Skaggs adds that a new regulation this year requires speed to be reduced on Highway 89 through the park at night.  At the same time, she cautions that construction is still under way on the bicycle pathway near the Moose junction and other construction projects may cause some minor inconveniences for traffic near the Craig Thomas Visitor Center.  Elsewhere, the Moose/Wilson Road remains closed through May 15th.
