Park partners help Grand Teton National Park accomplish a variety of projects, educate the public about park resources and provide services that could not be provided by park staff. In 2007, the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center opened in Moose. The National Park Service in partnership with the Grand Teton National Park Foundation and the Grand Teton Association funded construction of this visitor center. In 2011, the Grand Teton National Park Foundation funded a new auditorium added to the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center.
