June 1 - Aug. 19, 2018 | Invisible Boundaries: Exploring Yellowstone's Great Animal Migrations

This unique exhibit at the National Museum of Wildlife Art (NMWA) combines artwork and natural history by examining the migrations of local ungulates such as elk, pronghorn, and deer. Stunning photographs, paintings, videos, and an amazing interactive map are included. These media come together to chronicle the difficult journeys herd animals face every year. Contributors include Wildlife Ecologist Arthur Middleton, Photographer Joe Riis, Artist James Prosek, and Filmmaker Jenny Nichols. The title comes from the idea that these migratory animals cross many “Invisible Boundaries,” including lines between national park and wilderness areas, public and private lands, and neighboring states and countries. This exhibit encourages guests to think about the complexities of wildlife and land conservation.

Learn more at the NMWA website.

June 12, 2018 | Sandhill Cranes in Teton Valley

Join Joselin Matkins, Teton Valley Land Trust on June 12, 2018 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm at the Teton County Library to learn about the Sandhill Cranes of Teton Valley.

Jackson Hole Bird & Nature Club holds its monthly meeting on the second Tuesday on each month from 6:00 – 8:00 pm at the Teton County Library. Free and open to the public.

Sandhill Cranes are one of the iconic birds of Eastern Idaho and the Teton region. The Teton Regional Land Trust has been working to protect Sandhill Crane habitat for 20 years. The Land Trust has successfully protected much of the wetland habitat that the Sandhills depend on, but is still working to protect the agricultural fields – or loafing habitat – that provides critical forage for the birds. As a part of these efforts, The Land Trust has partnered with Idaho Department of Fish and Game, US Fish and Wildlife Service, LegacyWorks Group and private landowners to grow forage for migrating Sandhills. 2017 was the fourth consecutive season in which private landowners participated in the project. Please join us as Joselin Matkins, Executive Director of the Teton Regional Land Trust discussed the life history and conservation status of these fabulous creatures.
