Famous Landmarks

Two Moulton barns sit at the edge

of a quiet dirt road on the Antelope

Flats sagebrush plain. Nearly one

hundred years old, these famous

landmarks show inevitable signs

of aging, but they are far from

decaying relics of the past. Part of

Grand Teton National Park’s cultural land-

scape and one of its most photographed sites,

John and Thomas Alma Moulton’s barns symbolize

the frontier spirit, offering solid proof

that a tiny, self-sufficient community known

as Mormon Row thrived for two generations

despite Jackson Hole’s harsh climate and

isolation at the turn of the 20th century.

Mormon Row was settled in 1896 when

pioneering families loaded their wagons in

Rockland, Idaho, and set out for Jackson

Hole’s available land and sweet grass. After

dragging logs to slow their wagons’ descent

over Teton Pass and crossing the Snake River’s

swift water with the help of Menor’s Ferry,

the Row’s first residents arrived in July.

It was too late to plant fields and there was

no water for their livestock, so they plowed

a long irrigation ditch and hunkered down

to wait out the cold winter with other established

homesteaders. In the spring of 1897,

settlers dug wells and sowed what would

become a Mormon Row staple—an early

maturing oat they’d brought with them.

The U.S. Postal Service named the new community

Grovont, but everyone else called it

Mormon Row because most of the families

that settled there brought their religion

with them. From the first planting, the Row

flourished. Settlers traded eggs and grains for

other groceries at a local market and fought

off frigid winters with hot, blanket-wrapped

rocks and a steady diet of elk. Connected by

their faith and the cooperative community

spirit necessary for survival, Mormon Row

Outside my office, one of the first

snows of the season blankets the

mountains and valley. This brilliant

scene reminds all who are fortunate

enough to live in Jackson Hole full

time that we are in for at least five

months of winter!

While winter may indicate a different pace

in the valley, there is no slow season for the

Grand Teton National Park Foundation. We

are busier than ever and anticipating another

productive year of raising private funds for

one of the most magnificent national parks

in the system, Grand Teton National Park.

This past summer was an exciting time for

us. One of the highlights was the award

of a $500,000 challenge grant from the

prestigious Kresge Foundation towards the

Grand Teton Discovery and Visitor Center

campaign. The Kresge Foundation is a

$3 billion national foundation that builds

stronger nonprofit organizations by “catalyzing

growth, helping them connect with their

stakeholders, and challenging them with

grants that leverage greater support.”

The terms of the Kresge challenge grant

require the Grand Teton National Park

Message from Executive Director

Foundation to raise the remaining $1.3

million of our $12.1 million campaign for

the visitor center by September 30, 2007.

It is an all-or-nothing challenge. We are

thrilled to receive this endorsement from

a highly respected national foundation for

a center that will highlight Grand Teton

National Park’s rich history and unique

natural resources. The Foundation counts

on those who love this park to help us meet

this challenge and support this outstanding

educational resource.

As we look to 2007 and the Foundation’s

10th anniversary, we anticipate another

extraordinary year, a year in which private

philanthropy will provide funds for extra

special projects in our park. I extend a

special thank you to the founding board

members: Jerry and Helen Halpin,

Clay and Shay James, Ed and Lee Riddell,

Bob and Nancy Jaycox, Brad and Kate Mead,

and Rob and Celia Wallace. This group of

folks, along with numerous park officials

and our newer board members, helped

the Foundation grow and provide more

resources for the park. Due to these visionary

and determined people, there will be a new

visitor center in Grand Teton National Park.

Thank you for your commitment to the

Grand Teton National Park Foundation.

Your support enables us to make a difference

in this special place.

Youth Conservation

Program 2006

Imagine moving a 300-pound

rock without the use of power

tools or uncovering a bridge

buried under several feet of debris.

There was a new superteam working

on park trails this summer.

The Youth Conservation Program (YCP)

teens enjoyed working, earning, and learning

in Grand Teton National Park as part of a

ten-week program.

The YCP participants built new trails, cleared

debris, installed bear-proof containers,

repaired historic Menor’s Ferry, pulled exotic

weeds, and cleared vegetation, all while

hiking miles of the park each day. These 16

to 18 year olds were also immersed in park

education including history, fire training,

safety and rescue, and stewardship.

Through generous gifts, the Foundation

funded the first YCP program over the

summer, but there were also gifts of

goods. Timberland donated work boots,

Mountain Khakis provided sturdy pants,

Dickies sent tee shirts, and Lee’s Tees imprinted

shirts and hats for the fourteen young men and

women on the YCP team.

Finding gainful employment can be hard

for teenagers. The rewards of working for

a national park can be immense, particularly

if the participants are inspired to pursue a

career based on their summer experience.

The team was all smiles at their end of

summer barbeque. Each one said they

would do it again.

With gifts from members, the Foundation

hopes to fund this program for summer 2007.

Jackson Hole Wolves

Regaining Ground

The gray wolf is rapidly

recolonizing previously

embraced territory in and

around Jackson Hole.

Arriving as dispersers from the 1995-

1996 Yellowstone National Park

reintroduction program, wolves began

plying the terrain of Grand Teton National

Park in 1997, homing in on a denning area

and producing the valley’s first wolf litter

in more than 70 years in 1999. Aptly named

the Teton Pack, this group of wolves, their

offspring, and probably a few new members

from packs unknown, dominated this new

home for seven years, tending new litters

each year except one.

But during the winter of 2005-2006, after the

Teton Pack alpha male died, other wolves

sensed the stressed social structure of the pack

and moved in. The newly named Buffalo Pack

of about 11 wolves took over the den site and

much of the Teton Pack’s range, leaving them

to fragment and wander pupless during the

breeding season. Meanwhile, two new packs

were filling other voids in the valley. In the

Pacific Creek drainage, a pack with the same

name was firmly planted at a den site north of

the Buffalo Pack’s domain, and the new Sage

Pack was hidden away in a small corner of the

Snake River plain to the south. Later in the

year, yet another new pack with pups - the

Huckleberry Pack - was discovered in the

northern-most reaches of Jackson Hole, near

the far end of Jackson Lake.

Combined with two wolf packs in the valley’s

fringes, one in the upper Gros Ventre drainage

and another in the Victor/Driggs vicinity, and

the Flat Creek Pack which denned on the

National Elk Refuge in 2005, a total of eight

Photo courtesy of Diana Stratton

wolf packs were believed to use parts of the

valley in 2006. Five of these (Huckleberry,

Pacific, Buffalo, Sage, Gros Ventre) produced

pups. One pack (Teton) did not, and

the status of two packs (Victor/Driggs and

Flat Creek) remains unknown, because without

radio-collared wolves in these packs we

could not locate dens or follow their movements


The return of wolves to Jackson Hole has

restored predator prey systems in the valley

that evolved over thousands of years. Elk and

moose are a little more attentive to their surroundings,

and wolves test groups and individuals

to find the weak, easier targets. The

stronger animals survive, passing on these

traits to successive generations. Numbers of

coyotes in the valley are probably decreasing,

as they compete with wolves for space, while

red fox, which compete with coyotes but not

wolves, may be on the rise. Animals particularly

vulnerable to coyote predation, like

pronghorn fawns, should benefit too, as

coyote numbers subside. In short, long lost

ecological balances are returning.

But livestock losses from wolves are also

returning as some longtime valley residents

can recall from the past century. The adaptations

that equip these large canines to prey

on elk, bison, and moose make the occasional

killing of cows, sheep, and even horses easy

Rough locations of Jackson Hole wolf packs in 2006.

work. So far, wolf control actions taken in

response to livestock conflicts account for

the highest percentage of wolf deaths in the

ecosystem, followed by natural causes, unknown

circumstances, roadkills and poaching.

Clearly, the integration of wolves into our

current socio-economic structure has been

fraught with many emotions and valid perspectives

from all angles. Sporting reproductive

rates much higher than most similar-sized

carnivores, wolves are naturally equipped to

survive large annual losses. Whether or not

wolves retain ground recently gained in

Jackson Hole over the long run will likely be

determined by socio-political factors—our

willingness to accommodate wolves—rather

than ecological ones.

Appreciated Stock

Makes an Excellent Gift

Giving gifts of appreciated stock

to the Grand Teton National Park

Foundation is an easy and tax-wise

way of supporting park projects and


Appreciated stock is an excellent choice for

funding charitable gifts because it can offer

significant tax benefits for the donor without

impacting cash flow. In fact, to offset a capital

gain event during the tax year, many donors

gift shares of stock or mutual funds to counter

an anticipated capital gain tax.

Message from Grand Teton National Park

Superintendent M ARY G IBSON S COTT

Greetings from Grand Teton

National Park. I hope many of you

were able to visit the park during

the summer and fall seasons. As I

write this, the weather has moved beyond

the beautiful warm and sunny fall days but is

not yet snowy enough for winter recreation.

Deep snow is around the corner, and we will

enjoy the serene beauty of winter and all the

recreational activities the park offers when

the snow falls.

Summer 2006 was very productive and

punctuated by national events, visits by

dignitaries including Interior Secretary

Dirk Kempthorne and NPS Director

Fran Mainella, among others, and included

several complex search and rescue incidents

and highway accidents that presented special

challenges for park operations.


On June 17, Grand Teton National Park hosted

Deputy Secretary of the Interior Lynn Scarlett

and Wilderness Society President Bill Meadows

during a ceremony to dedicate the Murie

Ranch as a National Historic Landmark

(NHL). Grand Teton is home to two NHLs:

the Murie Ranch and the Jackson Lake Lodge.

The Murie Ranch is associated with Olaus,

Margaret (Mardy), Adolph, and Louise Murie,

whose biological research and advocacy for

wilderness have significantly influenced the

natural sciences and the American conservation

movement. People from all over the

world come to the

Murie Ranch to

experience a serene

environment and consider

ways to preserve

this country’s extraordinary natural resources.

Deputy Director Scarlett, the keynote speaker

at the June 17 event, applauded the Muries for

their passion and vision. She noted that “the

Muries saw significance in places untouched

or lightly touched by the footprints and

handprints of man.” Mr. Meadows called

Mardy Murie “a spirit that continues to lead us

today,” and reminded us of Mardy’s conviction

that “Americans love their public lands and

will stand up and fight for them.”


Discovery Communications spent several days

shooting additional footage for their documentary

film on Grand Teton and are putting

the final touches on the high-definition video.

This documentary will be shown in the new

Grand Teton Discovery and Visitor Center, as

well as other park and Jackson Hole venues.

We will co-host a special premier and anticipate

that it will be an awe-inspiring portrayal

of this incredible park. The date for the premier

showing is tentatively scheduled for late

May at Jackson Lake Lodge. More details

regarding this will be finalized in the spring.


The JY Ranch will soon be transferred to the

National Park Service to become a significant

addition to Grand Teton

National Park and

will be known as the

Laurance S. Rockefeller

Preserve. Many previous

trails and roads throughout the property

have been restored to their natural condition,

leaving approximately twelve miles of trails

for visitors to enjoy. Construction of a

platinum, LEED-certified building—home

to an innovative welcome center—is on

schedule and should be open to the public

in summer of 2007. According to the late

Laurance Rockefeller’s wishes, the building

and trails have been designed in an environmentally

sensitive manner.

Grand Teton is looking forward to managing

this outstanding natural area. We pledge

to preserve the distinctive character of this

special place and to respect Mr. Rockefeller’s

vision for the JY Ranch property by protecting

the natural setting, while allowing the public

to experience this part of the park in a more

contemplative manner.



Construction on the new Grand Teton

Discovery and Visitor Center is proceeding

rapidly. The walls are standing, the roof is in

place, and the main structure is quite evident.

An overall aesthetic impression is beginning

to take shape—one that complements the

stately silhouettes of the Teton peaks. Park

staff and visitors are excited to see what awaits

them next summer. It will be an amazing and

welcome contrast to the confined and windowless

space of the current visitor center.

A grand opening is planned for August 2007.

Secretary of the Interior Dirk Kempthorne,

and Wyoming’s senior senator, Craig Thomas,

are anticipated to be among the dignitaries

Bookstores Support the Park

Known by visitors as the “park

bookstores,” the Grand Teton

Natural History Association

(NHA) was born in 1937 with a

$500 gift from Jackson pharmacist,

Bruce Porter, to buy publications.

Dubbed the Jackson Hole Museum

Association, the organization was started as

a way for the park to provide informational

materials to visitors. Among members

of the first advisory committee were such

notables as Fritiof Fryxell, Steven Leek,

Harrison Crandall and Olaus Murie.

Today’s Grand Teton Natural History

Association, a non-profit organization,

supports the park, as well as federal agencies

such as the National Elk Refuge and the

national forests by selling interpretive,

educational, and research materials and

donating the revenue. The organization has

29 locations, 9 permanent employees, and it

hires 40 seasonal workers during summer.

who will help dedicate the

new building.

Since its beginning, the Natural

History Association has taken

on a variety of park projects

including partnering with the

Grand Teton National Park

Foundation and Grand Teton

National Park to build the new

visitor center that opens in June.

Grand Teton Natural History Association has

park stores in Moose, Colter Bay, Jenny Lake,

Menor’s Ferry, JDR Parkway, Jackson Hole

Airport, and online. They are also publishers

and wholesalers. Every item sold in the bookstores

must be interpretive and educational.

The NHA used to sell primarily books and

maps. In recent years the National Park

Service has encouraged NHA to sell other

educational materials in recognition of the

fact that people learn in different ways.

Beyond the park bookstores, the NHA is

responsible for several park programs including

Artists in Residence, Roadside Artists and

Writers workshops, book signings, and artwork

purchases. NHA has donated several

pieces of art that will be showcased in the

new visitor center.

Jan Lynch has been the executive director of

the Grand Teton Natural History Association

for four years. She began with the organization

in 1989 as a part-time sales clerk in the

Flagg Information Center store when her

husband, a park service employee, took a

position at Grand Teton National Park.

With a strong corporate background, she

moved up quickly, learning the ropes of

the Association until she was managing it.

“I can’t imagine doing anything else,” Jan says.

“This is all the fun and excitement of retail

but the income stays in our park to fund

great projects. What could be better?”

Lakes Swimmer Resor Completes Quest to

Swim all the Lakes of Grand Teton National Park

When Avery Resor began swimming

in the chilly lakes of Grand

Teton National Park, she didn’t initially

realize her favorite backcountry

activity would eventually evolve

into a quest.

But over time, Resor moved from swimming

the Tetons’ easily accessed bodies of water to

seeking out the more obscure and inaccessible

lakes in the park. Late this summer, during a

two-week visit home from college, the Jackson

native and her parents, Bill and Story, bushwhacked

their way to Talus Lake, located up

rarely traveled Snowshoe Canyon. After swimming

the picturesque lake, Resor had finally

completed her goal of swimming all 44 named

lakes in the park that sit within areas open to

the public.

“I never really thought it was a big deal,” said

Resor, 21, talking by phone from Durham,

N.C., where she’s studying environmental science

and policy at Duke University. “It was

just an excuse to go to obscure corners of the

park where there aren’t people.”

An avid swimmer, Resor began visiting the

park’s lakes more than 10 years ago, quickly

moving from easily accessible lakes such as

Bradley, Taggart and String to other lakes located

off of heavily used trails. After completing a

large number of swims in eighth grade, her

progress slowed when she began seeking out

more obscure lakes deeper in the backcountry.

“On a hot day in the middle of the hike it’s

refreshing when you jump in,” Resor said. “I

just love swimming in lakes. I jumped into a

lot of other bodies of water that didn’t have


When Resor finally decided to try and visit

each named lake, she counted 50 total.

However, six (including Swan and Heron

ponds) are closed to the public for habitat

restoration, so she settled on 44 as the final

number. She was accompanied by family

friend Hank Phibbs on several hikes, while

other swims were done on backpacking trips

with friends and family members. To qualify as

a swim, Resor would go under the water and

do several strokes.

Though every body of water in the park features

cold water, one swim stood out as being

particularly frigid. In early summer 1999,

Avery and her father climbed Buck Mountain,

where she planned to swim in Timberline

Lake, located at 10,000 feet. When they

arrived, the lake was almost completely frozen

over except for a six-foot hole in the ice. Resor

never hesitated, though she admitted it was

the shortest swim of any she attempted.

“That was the coldest, most epic swim because

it was iced over,” Resor said. “My dad put a

rope around my waist and kind of belayed me.”

Resor said several other lakes stood out

because of their beautiful settings, or because

they offered an especially scenic access route.

Several years ago, Resor visited Cirque Lake on

a multi-day backpacking trip. The remote lake

is tucked behind Maidenform and Cleaver

peaks north of Leigh Canyon and is accessed

most easily from Idaho. At Grizzly Bear Lake

north of Paintbrush Canyon, Resor swam

while several black bears lurked nearby.

Though nearly hidden, Rimrock Lake, tucked

below the summit of Prospectors Mountain,

was challenging to access.

Resor saved the most difficult trip for last. To

reach Talus Lake, Resor and her parents took a

boat across Jackson Lake and then endured an

arduous, eight-hour bushwhack up the North

Fork of Leigh Canyon, which has no trail and

is filled with downed timber and dense willow


“I saved the best for last, I guess,” Resor said.

“That was the hardest bushwhacking I’d

ever done and my mom and dad said they

hadn’t done something that hard since hiking

in Alaska.”

Resor said she’s not certain if there are others

who have dunked and stroked in each of the

park’s lakes, but she emphasized that her

swims weren’t the sole emphasis of her backcountry


“It’s not really so much about achieving this

goal, though it’s kind of fun to know I’ve gone

swimming in them,” Resor said. “Mainly it’s

been a way to play in the Tetons. Instead of

going to somewhere you’ve been before, just

pick a body of water and figure out how to

get there.”

Famous Landmarks—continued

neighbors not only worked the land and

carved out homesteads, they also built a post

office, a schoolhouse, a church, and a roadhouse

that served meals to travelers. The

close-knit community slowly began to separate

when several families sold their land to the

Snake River Land Company to make ends

meet during the Depression. By the 1950s, the

remaining homesteads were purchased for the

expansion of Grand Teton National Park.

While the pioneering way of life has

disappeared, Jackson Hole continues to

harbor reminders of the early settlement at

Mormon Row. The furrow settlers plowed

to tap irrigation water from Ditch Creek

still bisects the sage-covered plain. The Row’s

Saturday night dances are long gone, and

the church where they were held was moved

away. It was restored in the 1960s and

eventually became part of the Calico Pizza





building near Teton Village, providing a

different venue for socializing today.

Listed on the National Register of Historic

Places, Mormon Row represents an era when

enterprising families could claim some of our

country’s wildest land through the Homestead

Act of 1862. Grand Teton National Park

Foundation and the National Park Service,

along with volunteers and other organizations,

have donated time, money, and talent to

preserve these historic buildings and honor

this unique moment in time. Cherished landmarks

like the Moulton barns will continue

to inspire restoration efforts, generating the

same spirit of community that helped the

original settlers survive.

Article by contributing writer Kim Mills

Harrison Goodall of Conservation Services, the leading expert

on wood preservation and restoration, repaired decaying logs on

historic Mormon Row buildings in the fall of 1999. A generous

gift to the Grand Teton National Park Foundation provided for

the preservation effort.
