Cheers to a Successful Year!

Our volunteer-led, Wildlife-Friendlier Fencing program wrapped up in early October. Thanks to all who pitched in to remove or improve 4 miles of fence this season to make our landscape more permeable for wildlife. 

Making Fences Safer for Sage-Grouse

Learn how we’re working to help conserve the Greater Sage-Grouse by reducing “fence strike” mortalities in Wyoming!

 

Stay Alert for Wildlife on Roadways

Wildlife-vehicle collisions peak in winter months and abiding by nightly speed limits can help reduce your chance of a collision.

 

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 the Wyoming Department of Transportation.
