Live by The Wild Rules.

They were here first. The snowcapped mountains. Generations of elk herd. Pine trees that touch the sky. Mother nature’s greatest feats are everywhere. And in Jackson Hole, we’re lucky enough to live among them. But somewhere, somehow, we lost our way. We ran so wild that we forgot our place in the wild. We need a reminder that the wild rules.

Even a wild child respects mother nature.

Summer won’t last forever, but with your help, the spirit of Jackson Hole can. Learn how you can help preserve the nature of this special place.

Don’t walk all over the wild

Sleep under the stars as long as you’re on a site

Stay on designated campsites, douse your campfires, and leave no trace.

The wildlife were here first

Treat them with respect and give them space. Stay 100 yards from bears and wolves and 25 yards from all other wildlife.

STAY ON THE TRAILS

TAG LOCATIONS RESPONSIBLY

Geotagging photos in social media creates a surge in human traffic, increasing strain on delicate habitats. Post the photo. Trash the tag.

GO FORTH AND EDUCATE

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.


TAG LOCATIONS RESPONSIBLY. KEEP JACKSON HOLE WILD.

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.
