Trail Talk: A behind the scenes look at Grand Teton’s Youth Conservation Program – Week 9

The YCP crew successfully completed their ninth week on-the-job. Although a few team members have already left for their freshman year of college, the group is still going strong.

Monday and Tuesday consisted of white-washing the Menor’s Ferry Store and removing vegetation around several historical buildings, including the Maude Noble Cabin and the 4 Lazy F Homestead. Some crew members removed old roofing material and nails from the 4 Lazy F barn in preparation for volunteers who will re-roof the structure next week.

On Wednesday, YCP continued digging tread and nearly finished the seasonal, temporary bear trail at the Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserve. The week ended on a high note with a drain digging operation on the Signal Mountain and Grand View Point trails. The 2017 YCP crew has just a few workdays left to leave their mark on Grand Teton National Park!
