2019 Nature Mapping Potluck: Shark Week Comes to Jackson!

The date for this year’s annual Nature Mapping Jackson Hole Community Celebration has been set! We proudly present featured speaker Dr. Taylor Chapple, a world-famous research scientist at Stanford University working to increase our understanding and appreciation of sharks on local and global scales. Read the Press Release.

Winter Is Still Here...

Although temperatures continue to warm, deep snow remains in the valley and especially at higher elevations. You can help wildlife by remaining vigilant for animals crossing the roadways, and even shoveling or plowing snow to provide access to available forage!

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 dataset of wildlife distribution throughout Jackson Hole, and further connects us to the wild spirit of our valley.

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 the Wyoming Department of Transportation.

Join us in 2019!

Dates have been set for our Saturday summer fence modification projects. New volunteers are welcome!
