Grand Teton Field Office: Who We Are

Who We Are | Accomplishments | Meet Our Staff

The Grand Teton Field Office, based in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, anchors the southern end of the Northern Rockies Region. The Field Office works to protect the outstanding Grand Teton National Park, including the remarkable Teton mountain range, magnificent Snake River corridor, and the incredible and diverse wildlife in the Grand Teton and Yellowstone region. The Field Office also works to enhance visitors’ experience and improve the relationship of Jackson Hole’s surrounding communities with Grand Teton National Park.

There are many external resource threats to Grand Teton National Park. Some relate to grandfathered uses within the park, such as the existence of a dam on Jackson Lake and an airport located at the base of the Teton Range. The Grand Teton Field Office defeated a project to develop a hydropower project at the Jackson Lake Dam in the 2000s (read more), and like so many controversial issues, the threat has not disappeared. Unfortunately, special interests continue to push for industrial energy production in Grand Teton National Park. Development on lands outside of the park can also impact park resources, including wildlife, air and water. The Grand Teton Field Office monitors these uses and works with both park management and elected officials to address and mitigate impacts.

The Grand Teton Field Office is also involved in many park planning processes and protection efforts that are important to the future of Grand Teton National Park. We comment on formal processes and work closely with park managers on projects that could impact park resources. Past and current planning projects have included ensuring private lands within park boundaries are conserved, a management plan for bison and elk, the Snake River Wild and Scenic management plan, protecting the park’s bighorn sheep, elk and bison, and evaluating development at the Jackson Hole Airport, which is located entirely within Grand Teton National Park.
