String Lake Brigade

String Lake is one of the most popular destinations in Grand Teton due to its stunning scenery, access to water activities, and proximity to hiking trails. Record visitation in recent years has created a variety of management challenges for the park in this area during the summer season. The String Lake Volunteer Team (aka String Lakers) provides on-the-ground support to NPS staff to help minimize human-wildlife conflicts, parking issues, and resource impacts. 2016 was the pilot year of String Lakers and a huge success—it was the first summer in recent memory with no significant human-wildlife interactions and zero food rewards in the area.
