JACKSON, WYO. — Grand Teton National Park’s natural wonders and hidden beauty take center stage in the first of four videos aimed at raising awareness about the park using a contemporary and accessible medium that is available online to viewers around the world.

The Grand Teton National Park Foundation has released “Day and Night in Grand Teton,” the first of four videos in a new series. “From Valley to Peak” will include three additional films that feature spectacular footage of natural phenomena in Grand Teton National Park.

The films were recently completed by Jackson-based videographers Jesse Ryan and Ryan Christopher of New Thought Media on behalf of Grand Teton National Park Foundation and Grand Teton Association.

“Our effort to connect people to the park and to educate them about this amazing resource remains one of the most important components of our mission at the foundation,” said foundation president Leslie Mattson. ”Projects like this are a great way to spread the wonders of Grand Teton to national park lovers far and wide.”

The four-minute videos showcase a selection of striking natural occurrences through artfully captured landscapes, time-lapse sequences and insightful narration. The three remaining videos in the series will be released monthly in April, May and June.

The video series is one of the most recent foundation-funded projects, and echoes the organization’s mission to fund initiatives that go beyond what the National Park Service can accomplish on its own.  Since 1997, the foundation has raised more than $20 million for education-based capital projects, work-and-learn programs that connect youth to nature and various wildlife research and protection projects.

The first video is posted below, and is also available on the foundation’s web site.
