Join Us in Preserving Our Natural Resources
Triangle X Ranch is committed to work cooperatively and in partnership with Grand Teton National Park. We pledge to help fulfill its mission of preserving, conserving and protecting valuable park resources.
Triangle X is dedicated to providing our guests with a unique and enjoyable service. Our staff adheres to an Environmental Management Program, employing several practical measures to insure our operations positively affect park resources.
Environmental stewardship is an on-going process and should be a priority to all park visitors – we ask your help in achieving success.
You Can Help
Reducing use of fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas, means lower emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), the primary contributor to global climate change.
- Limit heating in your cabin by dressing appropriately for the weather
- Turn off lights when leaving
Water is necessary for healthy drinking water, ecosystems and food supplies. Large amounts of energy and chemicals are needed to treat both tap water and waste water.
- Take short showers
- Turn the faucet off when brushing your teeth
- Report leaky faucets, pipes, or other water-wasters
Practice No Idling
Idling consumes more fuel and produces more CO2 than restarting your car.
- Turn the car off if you are idling more than 10 seconds – especially in construction zones
Reduce and Reuse
Vast quantities of resources are used to manufacture; package and transport products. Once you are finished with it, it may end up in our overburdened landfills.
- Consider: What is the true environmental cost of this purchase and its disposal?
- Say “No, thank you” to bags at store checkout
- Use reusable water bottles and coffee mugs
Recycling saves precious resources and reduces waste in landfills. For example: recycling an aluminum can uses 1/5 the resources of producing a new can.
Triangle X recycling bins are located in ranch cabins, around the ranch, and in scenic and fishing boats.

- Corrugated Cardboard
- Aluminum Beverage Cans
- Plastic Containers -Type 1&2
- Magazines & Catalogs (glossy only)
