Color Change in Grand Teton National Park 

Don't miss the most recent release from our four part video series!  You'll love these shots of the Tetons' vibrant vistas: beaming bunches of wildflowers, breathtaking sunsets, young aspen trees at summer's end--and the list goes on.  


Color Change in Grand Teton comes on the heels of Day and Night in Grand Teton and Weather in Grand Teton, the impressive first two segments of our 'From Valley to Peak' series.  Recently completed by Jackson-based videographers New Thought Media, the series features some of the year's most spectacular footage of natural phenomena in the park.  




The Foundation partnered with Grand Teton Association to commission  the project in an effort to highlight the natural wonders of Grand Teton through a medium that is both contemporary and accessible. The four minute videos showcase a selection of striking natural occurrences through artfully captured landscapes, time-lapses and insightful narration.  


 The fourth and final video will be released in June.  We look forward to sharing it with you in next month's eNewsletter and on our website!    


'From Valley to Peak' videos will soon be available as part of a mobile phone app!  

Check Grand Teton Association's website for information.  

   Wildlife Whereabouts 


Spring has sprung in the Valley!   Young animals are out and about in the park, fish are spawning, and birds are migrating--what a fantastic time of year in the Grand Teton!     

  • Bison, moose, and elk calving seasons are at their peaks.
  • Nearly all bison and elk will have moved off of the National Elk Refuge soon.  They will follow snow melt and vegetation to more northern parts of the valley.
  • Wolf pups make their first exploratory appearances from their dens.
  • Female black and grizzly bears with cubs are now out and about but are making only small movements so that their cubs can keep up.
  • Neotropical migrating birds (western tanagers, humming birds, warblers, and others) have returned and are beginning nesting activities.
  • Cutthroat trout initiate spawning as water levels rise with spring run off.
  • Bald eagle eggs are hatching and young nestlings are being closely guarded by their brooding parents.
