Avalanche Fence Taken Down on Jackson Campus

Last Thursday, Teton Research Institute (TRI) staff led the full-day process of taking down more than 2000 feet of avalanche fence on the west slopes of Coyote Canyon. The fence will be put back up in time for winter snow, but will remain down through the snow-free months to minimize the risk of wildlife entanglement.

TSS graduate students Tom Moore and Emily Cleveland wrapped up their capstone experiences with TRI last week. During their time with us, Tom and Emily cored more than 700 trees from around Grand Teton National Park and Bridger-Teton National Forest. The tree cores will be used to reconstruct the fire history of the region.
