Signal Mountain Lodge has incorporated many environmentally friendly programs, initiatives, and Best Management Practices into our lodging and campground operations:
While staying at Signal Mountain Lodge, our guests have the opportunity to participate in many procedures that will help us with our initiatives to protect the resources of Grand Teton National Park, conserve energy and water, and reduce waste. By signing up for our Guest Environmental Participation Program, guests are pledging to make a difference and will receive a complimentary reusable grocery bag. The following is a list outlining the practices we ask of our guests participating in our sustainable stays program.
Property Wide Participation
Signal Mountain Lodge's management and staff welcome you to join us in our efforts to protect and conserve our natural resources. Together, we can make Signal Mountain Lodge and Grand Teton National Park a shining example of how conservation and recycling can work toward a better tomorrow.
It is the objective of Signal Mountain Lodge to protect all wildlife that reside in Grand Teton National Park and to preserve the Park's native species as much as possible. Each species residing in the park have a particular habitat and lifestyle requirements, and The National Park Service has provided guidelines for the safe viewing and etiquette concerning visitor interaction with wildlife. Handouts are available at Signal Mountain Lodge that outline proper etiquette and information for all animals residing in the park. Additional info may be found on the National Park Service website.Bear Awareness
While it is important to keep a safe and respectful distance from all animals in the park, black and grizzly bears are a particular concern. Signal Mountain Lodge educates guests and employees on bear awareness and the proper etiquette and safety precautions that need to be considered when staying in or traveling in bear country. All waste is disposed of and/or contained in bear proof cans and dumpsters or storage boxes, and any bear activity within the confines of the Signal Mountain Lodge or Leek's Marina areas is immediately reported to the National Park Service. Employee housing, campgrounds and guest cabin areas are monitored on a daily basis for bear attractants of any kind and specially designed food storage containers or "bear boxes" are provided for every campsite in our campgrounds to ensure that food is properly stored.
In partnership with Grand Teton National Park and the National Park Service, Signal Mountain Lodge supports the personal wellness of all our guests and staff by promoting health and well-being in body, mind, spirit, and environment through education, communication, and inspiration. It is our intention to rejuvenate and raise awareness for the role of public lands in improving the health of our nation. National parks are model settings to promote physical activity, healthy eating, and mental health, while also demonstrating how human health is interdependent on the health of all species and our environment.
We encourage all of those staying in Grand Teton National Park to get out and explore all that this amazing park has to offer. We encourage all of our guests to join the "Signal Mountain Summit Club"! By reaching the summit of Signal Mountain by either biking or hiking, guests are rewarded with a sticker to recognize their accomplishment.
Signal Mountain Lodge also offers a number of guided activities such as fly fishing, lake fishing, and rafting on the Snake River for guests to facilitate the many outdoor recreation activities available in the Tetons. Canoe, kayak, and boat rentals are also available at Signal Mountain Marina for the more adventurous outdoor enthusiasts who wish to explore Jackson Lake on their own.
Grand Teton National Park trail maps and information regarding hikes, wildlife viewing, backcountry camping, flora, fauna, geology, boating, and many other activities and areas of interest are provided to our guests. All of this park information is provided free of charge and is intended to inspire and educate our guests on the myriad of activities and natural wonders that Grand Teton National Park has to offer. It is our hope that if guests and visitors are provided with the information, education, and inspiration they will take advantage of the many opportunities available to them to get up, get out, and explore this amazing place.
