Habitat within the Snake River’s riparian zone forms the most critical wildlife movement corridor in the Jackson Hole valley. Can we balance human activity with the needs of the wildlife that depend on this corridor?
Watch our newest video filmed to raise local awareness of the ecological importance of our Snake River Corridor!
Snake River Corridor Project
Each year, we organize hundreds of volunteers to remove or modify fences to make them friendlier to wildlife movement. We rely on the voluntary engagement of private landowners and public agencies as we work to reduce migratory barriers and improve landscape permeability for our wild neighbors.
Nature Mapping Jackson Hole, founded by Meg and Bert Raynes and friends, provides an opportunity for citizen scientists to contribute to our local wildlife knowledge base. The collective observations create a long-term baseline dataset of wildlife distribution throughout Jackson Hole. Log your observations at naturemappingjh.org.
In 1994, JHWF launched a multi-faceted wildlife-vehicle collision reduction campaign with immediate mitigation measures on Jackson Hole’s highways to make roads safer for people and wildlife. We also now compile and distribute data that informs future transportation planning with partners such as WYDOT.
Staff, board, and volunteers with our Wildlife-Friendlier Fencing Program have worked in Jackson Hole for over 25 years to remove or improve fences which are barriers to wildlife movement or migration.
The Jackson Hole Wildlife Foundation advances wildlife conservation driven by science, collaboration,
and a community of volunteers.
