Park Rescue Foundation Established

Rangers Fund

The Grand Teton Association took the opportunity Wednesday during the first annual Search and Rescue in Grand Teton National Park Year in Review to announce a new foundation to benefit rescue operations in Grand Teton National Park.  The “Jenny Lake Rangers Fund” is designed to support a variety of activities including providing high quality search and rescue training, enhancing the ability to replace search and rescue equipment, acquire new technology and assist the park’s public education programs promoting safety.  However, the fund will not pay for rescue operations themselves. Each year, specially trained park rangers conduct over 70 missions ranging from twisted ankles on the trail to major rescues from cliff faces.  Already, the foundation has collected about $50,000 from a variety of individuals. The “Jenny Lake Rangers Fund” is being administered through the non-profit Grand Teton Association headquartered in Moose.
