JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - The grass roof over the Jackson Hole and Greater Yellowstone Visitor Center may be replaced soon by more conventional, asphalt-based shingles.

National Elk Refuge spokeswoman Lori Iverson says the visitor center on the refuge at Jackson could have a new roof installed as early as this fall.

Iverson tells the Jackson Hole News & Guide (https://bit.ly/1hHAvJ0 ) that the sod roof has been leaking for a couple of years.

The elk refuge has requested $115,000 for a new roof.

But Iverson says estimated costs for a new earthen roof came in at more than twice as much - between $250,000 and $300,000.
