Contact Information


When you have a question about the outdoors, who are you going to call? This extensive list of names and contact information may help you select the right agency and provide you with the quickest access. Virtually everything here is already on the internet. What I have done is consolidate this information from dozens of websites into one location. I hope you find it valuable.

Grand Teton Backcountry Reservation System

Requests for advance backcountry reservations for the summer season are accepted only from the first Wednesday in January (starting 8 am MST) through May 15. All requests must be submitted using the website Recreation.gov. Customers will be able to view backcountry campsite availability in real-time and apply for reservations accordingly. You will be charged a $35 non-refundable processing fee for each trip upon completion of your reservation.

The park will reserve up to one-third of each camping zone (see maps) in advance, and save two-thirds of each zone for those who wish to get a first-come, first-served permit in person one day before the start of a backcountry trip (walk-in permit). Those who do not secure an advanced reservation may still apply for a walk-in permit. During peak season (July and August), competition for these walk-in permits is high. There is a $25 fee for each walk-in backcountry permit.

Any backcountry permit involving technical climbing or mountaineering and any backcountry permit for Garnet Canyon must be picked up at the Jenny Lake Ranger Station. Open early June through early September.

You may download the Backcountry Camping Brochure to view our backcountry map with the locations of campsites and mileages between them.

"WOW. What a phenomenal piece you wrote. You are amazing." Jennifer Jackson

That is embarrassing but actually a fairly typical response to my nature essays. Since The Best of Nature is created from the very best of 16 years of these nature essays published weekly in the Idaho Falls Post Register (online readership 70,000), it is a fine read. It covers a wide variety of topics including humorous glimpses of nature, philosophy, natural history, and conservation. Readers praise the style, breadth of subject matter and my ability to communicate complex and emotional topics in a relaxed and understandable manner.

Everyone can find something to love in this book. From teenagers to octogenarians, from the coffee shop to the school room, these nature essays are widely read and enjoyed.

Some of the essays here are my personal favorites, others seemed to strike a chord with readers. Most have an important message or lesson that will resonate with you. They are written with a goal to simultaneously entertain and educate about the wonderful workings of nature. Some will make you laugh out loud and others will bring a tear to the eye and warm your heart.

Readers Write:

"You hit a home run with your article on, Big Questions in Nature. It should be required reading for everyone who has lost touch with nature...great job!" Joe Chapman

"We enjoyed your column, Bloom Where Planted. Some of the best writing yet. The Post Register is fortunate to have your weekly columns." Lou Griffin.
