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.
