News and Adventure from Glacier National Park

The Grand Teton National Park Foundation, in partnership with the National Park Foundation and the Department of the Interior, recently announced that is has raised 80% of the funds required to purchase the 640-acre Antelope Flats Parcel in Grand Teton National Park. These funds include $23 million from the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund. The parcel is currently valued at $46 million, and could be sold at auction for potential development if it is not purchased by the National Park Service before the end of the current calendar year. Development of this land would be extremely detrimental to wildlife habitat and permanently scar the landscape of Grand Teton National Park.

Here's the Foundation's latest video which show what's at stake:
