Summary

Teton County covers huge areas of Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, as well as the tourism destination of Jackson Hole. The County has been an early adopter of responsible and sustainable tourism practice. In 2014, it made the commitment to obtain formal certification, with the help of the Riverwind Foundation, in partnership with EarthCheck.
