Jackson, WY – A conference in Jackson this week will examine the culture, environment and economy of the greater Yellowstone area. Chartrure Institute Director Jonathan Schechter says "The Greater Yellowstone Power of Place" conference will hopefully become an annual event. Schechter says the conference is a unique opportunity to delve into the issues from many different angles. He says past conferences have focused on the economy or the environment. Schechter says this one will include the arts, community character, economy and wildlife and environment. It will feature addresses by Yellowstone Superintendent Suzanne Lewis and Assistant Secretary of State for Oceans, Environment and Science John Turner. It runs from January 22nd through the 24th at the Snake River Lodge and Spa in Teton Village.
