Jackson Hole Land Trust

The Jackson Hole community is invited to collaborate with artists on a new piece of public art. Materials are being gathered from different protected lands around Jackson to form a sculpture. Jackson Hole Land Trust Executive Director Laurie Andrews says the project is called FoundSpace.

“The idea behind FoundSpace is really reaching out to people to connect to finding space, finding space via time, finding space out in nature, finding space in the open spaces. And really also, the treasures that we have that connect us to those spaces.”

A new exhibit offers three painters’ views of protected private lands in Jackson Hole. Wyoming Public Radio’s Micah Schweizer reports on the first-ever collaboration between the Jackson Hole Land Trust and artists, called View 22.

The Bridger-Teton National Forest, with the help of the Conservation Fund, has added a 37-acre parcel of land acquired from the Jackson Hole Land Trust, protecting the land indefinitely.

The parcel, known as Poison Creek, lies about 15 miles south of Jackson and is considered an important winter habitat for bighorn sheep, elk and mule deer in the area.

Conservation Fund Wyoming director, Luke Lynch, says that there are a plethora of benefits to the state and the land in this deal.
