Grand Teton National Park

 

Welcome to Grand Teton National Park, an area of impressive scenery and abundant wildlife.  The park consists of more than

300,000 acres, including the heart of this Teton Range and most of the valley called Jackson Hole.  Grand Teton lies within the 

Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, the largest nearly intact natural area remaining in the contiguous United States.  Grand Teton and

Yellowstone National Parks, seven national forests, and two national wildlife refuges contain millions of acres.  Adjoining federal,

state, and private lands increase the size of this ecosystem, which is essential to free-roaming wildlife.

 

In 1929 Horace M. Albright, Director National Park Service, dedicated Grand Teton National Park.

 

Help Protect Park Resources

 

Wild animals are wild.  Do not feed or touch them.

Give animals plenty of space.

Walk on trails to avoid crushing plants and flowers.

Store food and dispose of litter properly.

Drive carefully. Watch for animals on the roads.

Pets must be leashed.  No pets are allowed on trails or in the backcountry.


The wide variety of plants on the moist Willow Flats provide rich habitat for many species including Uinta ground squirrels, sandhill

cranes, and beavers.
