Laramie, WY – The director of the National Parks Service praised the new visitors' center in Grand Teton National Park on Saturday.
Mary Bomar helped dedicate the center to the memory of the late Senator Craig Thomas. Bomar says the center will help keep Thomas' legacy alive.
"It's very children-friendly, it's very interactive, and the exhibits are just fantastic," she said. "What I also like about the new center is the courtyard at the back of the visitor's center, that's a great place to hold interpretive and education programs," she added.
Vice President Dick Cheney was also on hand to open the new center. The $18.5 facility was funded by the National Park Service, the Grand Teton Association and the Grand Teton National Park Foundation.
