Numerous research projects are done using the natural and cultural laboratory of Grand Teton National Park and the John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway. Researchers are required to obtain a permit and report the results of their investigations to the park annually. It may take several years to complete the study. Some of the recently completed cultural resource studies can be found here. Some of the recently completed natural resource studies are:
