Moose-Wilson Corridor Comprehensive Management Plan
The National Park Service (NPS) is initiating planning for the future of the Moose-Wilson corridor in Grand Teton National Park, and we are requesting your comments during the scoping period beginning December 6, 2013, to February 6, 2014.
The Moose-Wilson corridor comprises about 10,300 acres in the southwest corner of the park. This exceptional area has a remarkable variety of natural communities, cultural and wilderness resources, and opportunities for visitor enjoyment. Moose-Wilson Road extends 7.7 miles through the area and is the primary access to several park destinations, including Death Canyon and Granite Canyon trailheads, Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserve, White Grass Ranch and Murie Ranch historic districts, and Sawmill Ponds overlook. The corridor also provides unmatched wildlife viewing opportunities for a range of iconic large mammal species.
Developing a comprehensive management plan for the Moose-Wilson corridor is critical to ensure the protection of key resources, values, and visitor experience. This newsletter provides you with information about the planning effort and ways you can participate. By sharing your ideas and opinions about how the Moose-Wilson corridor should be managed, you can help us shape its future.
We are asking you to share your thoughts, concerns, and vision for the future of the Moose-Wilson corridor. Your input is very important in guiding the planning team's work. You can share your comments with us at the upcoming open house, through the 'Open For Comment' tab on this webpage, or by mailing your comments to us.
