Accommodations: Just two miles west of Moose, Wyoming on the south fork of the Snake River sits a small enclave of buildings nestled in a meadow of sage and sticky geranium. The ranch is surrounded by dense forest. It was here, on this unassuming site, that the Wilderness Act and the modern conservation movement were born.
The Murie Ranch Historic District is an inholding in Grand Teton National Park. The district is chiefly significant for its association with the conservationists Olaus Murie, and scientist Adolph Murie. Olaus and Adolph Murie were influential in the establishment of an ecological approach to wildlife management, carrying out research on predators as participants in an ecosystem rather than as isolated organisms. Olaus Murie was president of the Wilderness Society, and was an advocate for the preservation of wild lands in America. Retreat accommodations will be at the historic and rustic Murie ranch.
