A Landscape Where Wildlife and People Thrive

Get involved with conservation efforts like our Wildlife Friendlier Fencing Program! 

Save the Date for In a Landscape this June

The upcoming concert will take place at Woodbury Preserve, a picturesque private meadow near the Cache Creek Trailhead. The event will also feature a silent auction, with ticket sale proceeds supporting the Jackson Hole Wildlife Foundation.

Who we are

The mission of the Jackson Hole Wildlife Foundation is to advance wildlife conservation driven by science, collaboration, and a community of volunteers.

Our Programs

Wildlife Friendlier Fencing

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

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.

Give Wildlife a Brake

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.

Volunteer With Us!

We count on volunteers to help remove or improve fences to open up the landscape for wildlife movement and migration!
