September 30: Snake River Nature Mapping Surveys (Volunteers needed)

Join us to float an 8-mile section of the Snake River, from the Wilson Bridge to the riverside tipi camp of Jackson Hole Vintage Adventures. Along the way, we record all observations of birds and mammals as part of our systematic survey of riparian life in this vital Snake River corridor. The cost is just $30 to support our experienced river guides and for Jackson Hole Vintage Adventures, who otherwise donate the trip for the good of Nature Mapping Jackson Hole. Sign up for this trip by emailing Kate Gersh at kate@jhwildlife.org.
