On August 8, 2013, at a press conference in the park, Interior Secretary Sally Jewell unveiled Inspiring Journeys: A Campaign for Jenny Lake, a $16 million public-private project that will transform Grand Teton's most famous destination. The project is a collaboration between Grand Teton National Park and Grand Teton National Park Foundation that will celebrate the National Park Service's 100th anniversary in 2016 by creating a welcoming interpretive plaza and greatly improving trails, bridges, and key hiking destinations at Jenny Lake.
Grand Teton National Park Foundation provides private financial support for special
projects that enhance and protect Grand Teton National Park's treasured resources. Since 1997, our organization
has raised nearly $23 million for education-based capital projects, work and learn programs that
reconnect youth to nature, and wildlife research and protection.
By funding initiatives that go beyond what the National Park Service could accomplish on its
own, Foundation friends solve park challenges and create a solid future for Grand Teton.
