In the summer of 2013, projects regarding wilderness in the John D. Rockefeller, Jr., Memorial Parkway (Parkway) and Grand Teton National Park (Park) were researched and completed. The researcher worked under the direct supervision of Shan Burson, bioacoustics ecologist and wilderness coordinator for Grand Teton National Park, and with the staff of the Science and Resource Management Division of Grand Teton National Park. The main goal of the wilderness internship was the drafting of a wilderness eligibility assessment for the Parkway. Secondary tasks included research and recommendations for wilderness management in the Park.
