Bear-Proof Containers Required at Grand Teton Nat. Park

Laramie, WY – Backcountry campers at Grand Teton National Park will be required to use bear-proof food containers as part of an effort to reduce interaction between humans and bears.

Starting Saturday, Park visitors camping at elevations below 10 thousand feet must use approved, portable bear-proof canisters to store food.

The rule does not apply to certain designated backcountry campsites where food storage facilities are provided.
