Jackson Hole Land Trustlast updated: June 2014

The Jackson Hole Land Trust is a private, non-profit organization that was established in 1980 to preserve open space and the critical wildlife habitat, magnificent scenic vistas, and historic ranching heritage of Jackson Hole. By working cooperatively with the owners of the area’s privately owned open lands, the JHLT has ensured the permanent protection of over 24,000 acres in and around Jackson Hole and the Greater Yellowstone Area.

Our Valley

Jackson Hole is an extraordinary landscape. From blue ribbon streams and rivers, to open grasslands, and dense pine forests, the Tetons rise more than a mile into the sky and the “real west” makes itself known. Located in the heart of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, the last intact ecosystem in the lower 48 states, our valley is one of the highest priority conservation areas in the world. Surrounded by national parks and forests in all directions, 3% of Teton County is privately owned. These private lands support critical wildlife habitat and room to roam for a host of iconic wildlife species, and are also home to a growing human landscape.
