There are many opportunities to spend time outdoors with others who love wildlife!

Volunteer for Wildlife Projects

Volunteers are the lifeblood of the Jackson Hole Wildlife Foundation! While we always need help with office jobs, events, and volunteer coordinators, two of our projects – Wildlife Friendlier Landscapes and Nature Mapping JH – need help year-round.

We’re proud that we were formed as a grassroots organization aimed at engaging the community in making itself a better home for wildlife. That tradition carries on today, and our impact is largely due to the constant commitment of committed citizens.

Read on and get involved! We are one wild community!

Volunteer Projects:

Nature Mapping Jackson Hole

You enjoy long walks along the river or in the mountains; you’re curious about Jackson Hole’s wildlife; you like reporting a few details; and you’re comfortable with technology. You can get trained to become a citizen scientist and map the fauna of Teton County. It’s easy and fun. We also offer opportunities to contribute to specific research projects.

Wildlife Friendlier Fencing

You like spending a day in beautiful outdoor settings; you don’t mind helping remove old obsolete fences or help wildlife by modifying a fence for their safer passage, and you relish the thought of helping wildlife move through migration corridors more freely. In the past 20 years, our volunteers have removed or modified more than 175 miles of fence—enough to completely encircle Grand Teton National Park!
