Creative Ways to Give to Inspiring Journeys: A Campaign for Jenny Lake

Two recent donations of stone to Inspiring Journeys: A Campaign for Jenny Lake illustrate a unique way to support this public-private improvement project.

During excavation work required for the construction of their new home south of Teton Village, John and Elaine Carney produced 200 tons of boulders and stone that were perfect for the construction of steps, walls, and other features being built in the Jenny Lake area. Hearing about the Foundation’s need for locally sourced granitic material, the couple asked if the Foundation would be interested in accepting the donation. Grand Teton’s project manager inspected the material and found that it fit the need perfectly. Similarly, after learning that the 5 pallets of granite paving stone and boulders in their yard leftover from a previous project matched the material that will be used in the Jenny Lake front country plaza, Wyoming Landscape Contractors decided to donate the material to the Foundation.

Do you have granite boulders or excess landscape material that matches the rock you see in the Tetons? Consider a gift-in-kind to support Inspiring Journeys: A Campaign for Jenny Lake.
