Update submitted by Tim O’Donogue, Coordinator, Jackson Hole & Yellowstone Sustainable Destination Program and GSTC Early Adopter Destination Liaison for Teton County

Teton County has a significant history of stewardship dating back to 1872 with the creation of the world’s first national park, Yellowstone National Park.   This achievement was followed by the establishment of the Caribou-Targhee and Bridger-Teton National Forests, the National Elk Refuge, Grand Teton National Park, Wild & Scenic River status for the Snake River. Our committment includes working to protect much of the Wyoming Range, including buying out gas exploration leases.

This week marks the one year anniversary of Teton County's participation in the GSTC Early Adopters Program.
