Help Keep Jackson Hole Wild 

The abundance and diversity of Jackson Hole’s wildlife are gems which set us apart from other mountain town destinations.

If wildlife is to flourish here into the future, we need to ensure that they have the room to roam, that migration continues, and that we have actively engaged residents and visitors who ask questions, learn, and act together while celebrating a common value – wildlife!

Jackson Hole is a world-famous mecca for outdoor recreation. The partnership between recreation and conservation lie at the heart of what makes our community so special. We believe that by continuing to practice responsible recreation during your visit – everything from respecting winter wildlife closures to giving wild animals space on our trails – we can maintain this balance and our valley’s wildness for future generations.
