Hot Spot

Bridger-Teton National Forest 2019

Jackson, WY

The Bridger-Teton National Forest holds some of the most iconic and pristine mountainscapes, rivers, and forests in the American west.  The town of Jackson has become a year-round recreation mecca because of all this forest and other surrounding public lands has to offer.  One of the most notable features found here is the level of geothermal activity and, therefore, hot springs.  Many of the easily accessible hot springs near the town of Jackson are frequently visited and have shown increasingly high levels of related impacts.  We will be working with the USFS and other local stakeholders on a series of guided roundtable strategy meetings, communication workshops, and public outreach programs to work toward addressing these impacts.

* This was originally scheduled for February 2019, but was postponed until late October because of the government shutdown*
