John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway

Superintendent Name: 
Mary Gibson Scott
The John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway provides a natural link between Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks containing features characteristic of both areas. In the parkway, the Teton Range fades to a gentle slope at its northern edge, while rocks born of volcanic flows from Yellowstone line the Snake River. The late conservationist and philanthropist John D. Rockefeller, Jr. made significant contributions to several national parks including Grand Teton, Acadia, Great Smoky Mountains, and Virgin Islands. In 1972 Congress dedicated a 24,000 acre parcel of land as John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway to recognize his generosity and foresight.
