Do you know someone who is quietly making a difference in Jackson Hole? Maybe you know of someone who’s installed wildlife-friendly fencing.

35th Anniversary Celebration

Jackson Hole Conservation Alliance 35th Anniversary
Celebrating our local roots. Connecting the wHole community.

We’re proud of our roots. Jackson Hole’s conservation legacy includes the contributions of many people acting individually and collectively to strengthen those roots. Every act has mattered, and the Jackson Hole Conservation Alliance is proud of the role it has played in connecting people as we’ve worked together to build a strong, wild, and beautiful community for 35 years.

As we celebrate our 35th year, we want to recognize the locals who form our roots in the “wHole” through their everyday actions. We’d like you to help us find those individuals who are making a difference in ways both large and small. Whether it’s the responsible hunter using copper shot, the backcountry skier informing others of seasonal closures, the homeowner adopting Wild Neighborhoods practices or the rancher who installed wildlife-friendly fencing, the true heroes of conservation in Jackson Hole are those whose actions demonstrate a commitment to something bigger than themselves, a person deeply rooted in the “wHole” community. Tell us who you think is making a difference by Wednesday, July 16.

From your nominations, we will select 10 individuals who will be featured in videos that highlight their essential contributions to the “wHole.” These videos will be shown during the public celebration of our 35th anniversary on September 21 at the Center for the Arts.

We look forward to celebrating our roots with you, and thank you for all you do to enhance this wild and beautiful community!

Nomination Guidelines

• Please submit your nominee by Wednesday, July 16 at 5 pm MT.
• An individual may nominate more than one person, but cannot nominate themselves. (Our roots are humble!)
• Actions considered worthy of recognition are not limited by scale or field. We’re interested in people who keep us connected to place, and to each other. We encourage nominations that span occupations and interests. All aspects of the community contribute to the “wHole.”
 Please CLICK HERE to submit your nomination, or deliver to the Jackson Hole Conservation Alliance office at 685 S. Cache Street. You may mail nominations to PO Box 2728, Jackson, WY 83001, but please ensure that we receive the form by July 16.
