Old Bills is a Jackson Hole tradition that celebrates the philanthropic spirit of the Jackson Hole Community. Your contributions to the Alliance through Old Bill’s provide important funds to help the Alliance do the important work of “Protecting the wildlife, wild places and community character of Jackson Hole.” Currently, that work includes:
- Updating the Rural Land Development Regulations (LDR’s) to retain critical habitat and improve wildlife permeability and adherence to the Community’s Comprehensive Plan in the face of ever-growing development pressures.
- Monitoring currently planned and future development and providing public comment to encourage Town and County leaders to ensure adherence to current LDR’s and community standards. This includes development on State Trust Lands.
- Ensuring that highway development on the WY 22 corridor, including Tribal Trails, adheres to the needs of wildlife, evaluates all options and embraces input from all stakeholders.
- Protecting the Karns Meadow habitat and wetlands from excessive park development
- Opposing the expansion of Grand Targhee Resort onto public US Forest Service land as well as the desired private expansion at the resort base. We are collaborating with partners to protect wildlife habitat, wilderness value, wildfire safety, and community character of Victor, Driggs, Alta, and surrounding areas.
- Promoting community leadership through our Conservation Leadership Institute. This breakthrough program is celebrating its 10th year and has graduated leaders including community leaders in Jackson Hole nonprofits, Wyoming’s State Legislature, business leaders and others shaping Jackson Hole’s unique character.
- Partnering with over 20 other conservation NGO’s in the Bridger Teton Working Group – a collaborative aimed on ensuring conservation focused forest plan revison for the Bridger Teton National Forest.
