Make your trip to Jackson Hole make a difference. Practice safe and sustainable tourism.
Take only photos, leave only footprints on marked trails. It can take the ecosystem 10 to 30 years to recover from off-trail hiking.
Stay on designated campsites, douse your campfires, and leave no trace.
Treat them with respect and give them space. Stay 100 yards from bears and wolves and 25 yards from all other wildlife.
Stay on marked bike trails, maintain a safe speed, and use extra caution on mixed-use trails.
Trade in four wheels for two. Use the START bike share. Consider taking the START bus or walking. And if you need a car, go electric.
Leave no trace wherever you go. Grab a reusable Stay Wild tote bag. Take short showers. Recycle all that you can.
Wildlife share their habitat with us. Never approach or feed any animals. Stay at least 100 yards away from bears and wolves, and 25 yards away from other wildlife.
Trails are made to lessen environmental impact. Obey all posted signs and respect boundaries.
Geotagging photos in social media creates a surge in human traffic, increasing strain on delicate habitats. Post the photo. Trash the tag.
Bring the spirit of Jackson Hole with you when you leave. The small actions you take make a big difference in preserving special spaces for generations to come.
In Jackson Hole, our lands are highly ‘grammable because of a tradition of preserving the wild. Unfortunately, every time someone tags the precise location in an epic nature photo, it brings excess traffic that’s harmful to the environment. As champions of conservation, we ask that you share your photos using a generic location tag:
Tag Responsibly, Keep Jackson Hole Wild.
