Nature Mapping Jackson Hole

Nature Mapping Jackson Hole relies on trained, citizen scientists from our community to report what, when and where they observe wildlife. These collective observations create a long-term dataset of wildlife distribution throughout Jackson Hole. By observing and recording the wildlife we see on a daily basis, and making these observations available to others in the community, we hope to inform land management decisions and wildlife biologists.

By participating in Nature Mapping as a citizen scientist you can contribute to this valuable community resource. When everyone contributes a small amount, the end result is tremendous!

Nature Mapping Jackson Hole is a project of the Jackson Hole Wildlife Foundation sponsored by the Meg and Bert Raynes Wildlife Fund, grants and private donors.
