Protecting the wildlife, wild places, and community character of Jackson Hole.
40 years ago, a group of caring neighbors bound by a ferocious love for the magic of Jackson Hole founded the Jackson Hole Alliance for Responsible Planning. We’ve worked as a watchdog to defend Jackson Hole from many things you don’t see today, from oil/gas wells in Cache Creek to a grizzly bear theme park to a dam that would have flooded Oxbow Bend. Now, as the Jackson Hole Conservation Alliance, we believe our valley still needs a local organization with deep roots to address bad ideas that don’t align with our community’s values. And we believe that if we are to succeed in protecting what we love about Jackson Hole, we must do more than respond to threats: we must empower the whole community to proactively create a better future.
That’s why we work to make Jackson Hole a national model of a strong community living in balance with nature. This is a future for Jackson Hole where abundant populations of wildlife have the freedom to roam across the landscape, through our neighborhoods, and safely cross our roads; where we live in walkable neighborhoods with accessible transportation choices and affordable homes, surrounded by protected open space, working agricultural lands, and connected wildlife habitat; and where we respect wildlife when we recreate on protected, wild, well-managed public lands.
