PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS

OUR IMPACT

Interpretive staffing support for the busiest season on record

GTA Associate Luxianna Watkins joined Grand Teton National Park full time in 2021 as a media associate.In this role, she works on a variety of print and digital projects to create engaging, informative, and enjoyable media for the park and help visitors memories for a lifetime.

Supporting the education and interpretive needs of increased visitation

GTA supports the publication of educational and interpretive materials for all our partner agencies as they meet the changing needs of visitors. During the COVID pandemic, visitation to public lands dramatically increased. Often this was a first time visitor to public lands. In response, Grand Teton Association developed this resource to deepen visitors understanding of the differences in land use regulations with our three agency partners.

GTA Mobile Interpretive Van meets the needs of visitors where they are

In response to increased visitation during a second summer of COVID and changes in visitor use patterns, GTA collaborated with agency partners to pilot a mobile unit to provide essential information and interpretive producta at high use public land sites.

Spreading Teton Creativity Throughout the World

Mountain towns often have a way of attracting fiercely independent creatives, and Jackson Hole is no exception. Grand Teton Association began to take note of the many local artists in the area, and to envision what it would look like to bring their creativity into their retail locations. Not only would this be more environmentally friendly, it would also support and help boost the local “makers” economy.

GTA’s Sustainability Efforts

GTA steps up their environmental efforts.Part of the privilege of supporting the vibrant future of this incredible landscape means that GTA’s daily decisions have a great impact on the long term health of the area. GTA takes their stewardship role of this place very seriously.

Telling our Story Through the GTA Brand

For over 80 years, Grand Teton Association (GTA) has supported the educational initiatives of its agency partners by contributing 100% of sales profits from its retail locations. In 2019, GTA began working with local marketing and creative agency, Cultivate. These efforts identified an opportunity to increase organization impact by clarifying GTA’s mission and strengthening its organizational brand. GTA firmly believes that when visitors better understand the positive impact their purchase has in support of public lands, they would choose a GTA retail location over other businesses.
