Wildlife-Friendlier Fence Dates Set for 2021

As we celebrate the 25th anniversary of our Wildlife-Friendlier Fence Program, we are excited to announce tentative dates for our 2021 projects!

Making Fences Safer for Sage-Grouse

JHWF is responsible for raising and lowering 7 miles of fence in critical Greater Sage Grouse habitat to reduce “fence strike” mortalities and help increase Grouse numbers in Wyoming. 


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

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.

Educational Campaign Targets Visitors

Our Being Wild Jackson Hole campaign intends to strengthen visitor bonds to wildlife conservation through storytelling, education, and opportunities for visitors to get involved!


Our Mission


The Jackson Hole Wildlife Foundation advances wildlife conservation driven by science, collaboration,
and a community of volunteers.


Become a Volunteer!

We rely on the support of volunteers for many of our Nature Mapping Jackson Hole programs and our Wildlife-Friendlier Fence projects.
