Our wildlife-friendly path from then to now began in 1993, when a small group of passionate citizens aimed to create a more wildlife-friendly community by forming the Jackson Hole Wildlife Foundation.
In 2018, we celebrated our 25th anniversary working to reduce human-caused impacts on our wild neighbors, right here in Jackson Hole. Though the organization has evolved over the years, we’ve stayed true to our values; a community land ethic in action: creating a better home for our wildlife.

JHWF assumes responsibility for a Jackson Hole bird monitoring program known as MAPS (Monitoring Avian Productivity and Survivorship). Begins collaboration with other non-profits to help advise Teton County on feasibility of establishing strategic wildlife crossings. Nature Mapping launches Neighbors to Nature in Cache Creek and fence volunteers remove their 200th mile of fence!
JHWF partners with local conservation organizations to advance $10 million dollars in funding for wildlife crossing solutions in Teton County onto the November SPET ballot.
