The purpose of Inspiring Journeys: A Campaign for Jenny Lake is to create a cohesive, durable, and timeless complex of trails, bridges, and other facilities at Jenny Lake.
Jenny Lake, Grand Teton’s most visited destination, hosts more than 1 million people each year—a number that was inconceivable in the 1930s when the Civilian Conservation Corps crews built park trails.
Grand Teton National Park Foundation is the park’s primary fundraising partner and will provide $14 million to improve the Jenny Lake area. Grand Teton will contribute $4 million to the project. The campaign ends August 25, 2016.
Backcountry improvements will provide a well-planned, artfully constructed, and intuitive network of trials, connecting more durable and better defined gathering areas at key destinations in order to allow meaningful wilderness experiences for generations of park visitors.
