Volunteer on a Teton Valley fence pull this Saturday

On Saturday, September 23rd, we’re recruiting volunteer help to remove 0.5 miles of four-strand barbed wire fence in Teton Valley, near the Teton River.

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.

We accomplish our mission primarily through on-the-ground projects guided in collaboration with agencies, organizations and private land owners. We also gather and disseminate wildlife data that can inform policy and educate the public.

Bat biologist to give free presentation October 2nd

Bats have been hunting the skies for over 60 million years and are adept at capturing prey; insects however are not defenseless. Join us for a presentation by Harlan Gough, who will describe the many adaptations at work in this nocturnal arms race. Email hilary@jhwildlife.org to RSVP!

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.

Helping remove obsolete fence is a fun, effective way to open up the landscape for wildlife movement and migration!
