Grand Teton National Park watercraft inspections are underway

/

Local residents and visitors to Grand Teton National Park are being reminded to do their part to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species and have their watercraft inspected before launching on park waters. Those who recreate on park waters have a responsibility to drain, clean, and dry their vessel, as well as check fishing gear before launching in the park.

The park is working in partnership with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department to provide education, watercraft inspections, and monitoring to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species into Wyoming. Recreationists transporting any watercraft, including non-motorized vessels such as canoes, kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, and inflatables are required to stop every time they pass an open inspection station in Wyoming or Grand Teton National Park.




Park inspection stations are located in Moose, adjacent to the post office, and in Moran, north of the Moran Entrance Station, and operate daily 7:30 am to 4:30 p. through September 11th. All boats are required to have a park boat permit prior to launching on any water in Grand Teton, including canoes, kayaks, stand-up paddle boards and inflatable watercraft. Park boat permits can be purchased online via Recreation.gov. A park non-motorized boat permit is $17, and a motorized boat permit is $56.
