In January Groundwork Denver staff member Dele Johnson participated in a week long program in Grand Teton National Park as part of a partnership between the National Park Service, Groundwork USA, the Student Conservation Association , Teton Science Schools, Grand Teton Association and the Grand Teton National Park Foundation for Mountains to Main Street. An initiative in conjunction with the NPS centennial anniversary, these six entities came together with one goal in mind, connecting new and diverse populations to the NPS and connecting them to these parks and historical sites in hopes of ushering in the next, more diverse generation of park service employees and advocates. The Groundwork trusts from all over the country participated in Mountains to Main Street working alongside members of the SCA, with facilitation help from the staff of TSS and the NPS to create programming to accomplish these goals. This spring 20 GW trusts and 10 SCA members will be carrying out the programs we created during the week at the Grant Tetons. Stay tuned for updates on GWD’s program and to find out how you can get involved!
