We Are Climate Positive
In partnership with the Grand Teton National Park Foundation, we are helping to re-wild majestic landscapes, so indigenous flora and fauna can thrive in their native lands after over a century of man-made impact. When early American settlers planted invasive grasses for agricultural use, these lands were stripped of their natural flora, harming essential habitat for wildlife. Today, we’re restoring these plants where they belong, greatly benefitting the animals that call this precious ecosystem home.
We Are Re-Wilding
What is re-wilding, and why do we care so much? The re-wilding of nearly 4,500 acres of Grand Teton land means removing those invasive grasses and restoring the natural, native sagebrush habitat. It’s a delicate and time-consuming process that benefits the wildlife dependent on the park to survive. Thanks to these efforts, bison, elk, mule, deer and badgers (to name a few) are flourishing in their native habitat.
At Alpyn Beauty, we’re seeing it (and stepping in it)
"I never thought that stepping in a pile of buffalo scat would be the highlight of my year, but in this case, it was,” says founder Kendra Kolb Butler. “It proves that the re-wilding efforts of our friends at Grand Teton National Park Foundation have been successful enough to allow local fauna of Wyoming to thrive in this beautiful park."
