Jackson Hole is a place of great wonder, one characterized and informed by the natural influences of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. It attracts millions of people each year who seek proximity to its singular nature. A number of organizations run by passionate, dedicated residents work toward the health and wellbeing of this place and its people, but the growing costs of real estate threaten their ability to do so in the future.

As we lose these organizations and the people committed to running them, we lose not only the heart and soul of the Jackson Hole community. In a time of great ecological peril, we lose what is becoming an ever-more valuable opportunity to understand, explore and celebrate the delicate relationship between people and land—and to advance policies and legislation that insure our planet’s future.
