2014 Annual Report October 1, 2013 – September 30, 2014 quality in nature with the pretty. Our ability to perceive begins, as in art, It expands through successive stages of the beautiful to values as yet uncaptured by language. - Aldo Leopold There must be some force behind conservation, BOARD MEMBERS Fred Staehr, President Rod Moorhead, First Vice President Jake Ankeny, Second Vice President Scott Pierson, Secretary Jacqueline Erdman, Treasurer Bill Adams Jill Baldauf Tania Evans Tom Evans Ann Frame Pete Lawton Mandy Mahoney Jeff Milton Karen Parent Bob Peters Joel Revill Jason Snider Jennifer Sparks Robert Strawbridge, III Anna Sullivan Ken Taylor John Vogelstein more universal than profit, less awkward than government, less ephemeral than sport, something that reaches into all times and places where men live on land, something that brackets everything from rivers to raindrops, from whales to hummingbirds, from land-estates to window boxes. I can see only one such force: a respect for land as an organism; a voluntary decency in land-use exercised by every citizen and every land-owner out of a sense of love for and obligation to that great biota we call America. This is the meaning of conservation, and this is the task of conservation education. – - Aldo Leopold We are often asked, and ask ourselves, why people are inspired to conserve land. Our community of landowners, supporters, volunteers, artists, Open Space Council, board, and staff give their time, energy, resources, talent, and dedication to this cause, year after year, acre after acre. Recently, we came across quotes by Aldo Leopold – one of the founders of America’s conservation movement – and discovered many possible answers to this question. The passage above, from one of Leopold’s final lectures, struck a special chord with us here at the Jackson Hole Land Trust, because the concept of a voluntary motivation for conservation, inspired by a sense of love and respect for the land, resonates with how we strive to work in our community. Our Annual Report shows this motivation for conservation in action, expressed through the many individuals that contribute to our work, and translated into results. The 2014 fiscal year – October 1st, 2013 through September 30th, 2014 – was an incredibly active and successful year, with the pace and scope of our efforts matching a big vision for land conservation embodied by our Forever Our Valley campaign. We conserved 6 new properties on 303 acres, including the first phase of the East Gros Ventre Butte project, an ambitious effort to protect pristine sage grouse habitat and scenic views right outside the Town of Jackson – and laid the groundwork for exciting new projects in the 2015 fiscal year. Through our stewardship program, we made face-to-face contact with conservation landowners and ranch managers to monitor the health of protected lands and respond to any land use questions or issues. We shared our successes, and their impact, with thousands of community members through events, communications, and the View22 Project. We grew our annual fund to support these efforts as well as build capacity for the future. EMERITUS BOARD MEMBERS Bill Ashley Vince Lee Gil Ordway Allan Tessler Mike Wardell Leopold also wrote, “There are two things that interest me: the relationship of people to each other, and the relationship of people to the land.” We have found these relationships to be central to why each of us as individuals, each with our own personal connections, stories, and motivations, have found meaning in the Land Trust’s mission to protect the open spaces of Jackson Hole. We hope that the Aldo Leopold quotes shared in the pages of this annual report will strike a chord with you, reaffirming the sense of love and respect for the land that inspires your passion for conservation – and for keeping Jackson Hole Forever Our Valley.

That lands yields a cultural harvest is a fact long known, but often forgotten. Since the campaign’s inception, several exciting opportunities to protect high-quality open space in Jackson Hole have emerged and we have been successful in protecting these significant properties through funds raised by the Forever Our Valley campaign. The land protection portion of the River Springs – Rendezvous Park Project was the first such opportunity, followed by the first phase of the East Gros Ventre Butte Project, a landscape-scale effort to protect wildlife habitat and scenic views (described to the right). We continue to partner with landowners in Jackson and are cultivating several visionary projects which will protect additional wildlife habitat on East Gros Ventre Butte as well as iconic ranchlands. While in the initial leadership phase of the campaign, our devoted Campaign Committee, board, and staff have been successful in securing generous commitments from a growing group of dedicated supporters that recognize the opportunity and importance of conserving these open spaces. Hearing what motivates and inspires these individuals, we are humbled by their generosity and vision which demonstrates the land ethic in action – a commitment to the land that yields an ecological and cultural harvest for the wildlife and people of Jackson Hole. We have accomplished significant milestones for the campaign, but have much more to accomplish. We invite you to join us in our campaign to ensure that this will be Forever Our Valley. For more information about the Forever Our Valley campaign, please contact Laurie Andrews. The following donors have committed leadership funds or pledges to the Forever Our Valley Capital Campaign Protection Fund. East Gros Ventre Butte The East Gros Ventre Butte Project exemplifies the vision of the Forever Our Valley campaign. With an overall goal of permanently protecting over 350 acres on the east face of the butte, this landscape-scale, multi-phase project has required – and inspired – thoughtful strategy, partnerships, campaign contributions, and willing landowners. Timing, resources, and resolve have proven to be key to the project’s success to date. The project seeks to conserve important wildlife habitat and scenic vistas on the pristine open spaces of East Gros Ventre Butte – a prominent and familiar-to-the-eye landform located just north of the Town of Jackson along Highway 26/89/191, adjacent to the National Elk Refuge, Grand Teton National Park, and Spring Gulch, and above the National Museum of Wildlife Art. A central wildlife migration corridor for the Jackson Hole area, it includes sage grouse core area, crucial mule deer habitat, and habitat for moose, bighorn sheep, songbirds, raptors, and many other wildlife species. Completed in November 2013, the 181-acre first phase of the project eliminated 5 homesites and associated access roads, and extinguished all residential, industrial, and commercial development rights. This phase was made possible through significant support from the Pike H. Sullivan, Jr. Revocable Living Trust, the Meg and Bert Raynes Family Trust, several anonymous campaign donors, grant funding from the Wyoming Wildlife and Natural Resource Trust, The Conservation Fund’s Wyoming Sage Grouse Conservation Campaign, and the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole, and a neighbor that is the new landowner of the property. We are grateful to the generous campaign donors that have brought the East Gros Ventre Butte Project – grand in scale, complex in detail, and timely in priority – within reach. With the groundwork for future phases in place, we will continue to work toward aligning resources and timing to secure these additional easements for the sake of native wildlife and treasured scenic views. David Stubbs In 2011, with the cost of property and the demand for development rising rapidly in Teton County, the Jackson Hole Land Trust developed a strategy to increase our preparedness to identify and execute high priority land protection projects quickly and efficiently. Diligent research and feedback from the Jackson community strongly suggested that conserving the character-defining lands of Jackson Hole would continue to be a priority for residents of and visitors to the valley. Responding to the passion and support for the protection of these lands, the Land Trust began laying the groundwork for our Forever Our Valley campaign. The goal of this campaign is to generate necessary resources that are critical for proactively seeking out and quickly negotiating meaningful conservation deals in priority areas that align with our mission to preserve the wildlife habitat, iconic scenic viewsheds, and historic ranching heritage of Jackson. In addition, the campaign seeks to establish a Forever Fund which will allow the organization to honor our commitment to steward the acres protected by this campaign and ensure that the conservation values of the land are upheld forever.

Land Protection Wind River Program Our land protection program is focused on the 20,000 acres of character-defining open spaces currently unprotected in Teton County as well as in the Wind River Program area. Working together with landowners and partners, we use a quiver of strategies tailored to each property to place new conservation easements on these lands. In fiscal year 2014, we conserved 6 new properties totaling 303 acres. In addition, we accepted three transferred easements in Teton and Sublette counties totaling 496 acres. The Wind River Program of the Jackson Hole Land Trust was created in response to growing interest in the expansion of our work into the Wyoming portion of the Greater Yellowstone. With an office in Dubois, WY, the program seeks to protect the extraordinary conservation values of the Wind River Valley and other parts of Fremont County – areas known to be important wintering grounds for wildlife from an extensive portion of western Wyoming, including mule deer and pronghorn antelope from Jackson Hole. THE PATH AHEAD Looking ahead to fiscal year 2015, we are working on over 12 active protection projects representing 900 acres in Teton County and 3,100 acres in the Wind River Program area. As of the end of the 2014 calendar year, 5 of these projects have already been completed, including the landmark Munger Mountain Corridor Project, 3 new easements on properties in the Snake River riparian corridor, and a new easement along the Wind River at the base of the Dubois Badlands. Since its inception in 2007, the Wind River Program has relied on a model for conservation projects that leverages funds from public and private sources. In recent years, opportunities for projects with private landowners that wish to donate conservation easements on their land have also emerged. Wind River Program Director Ellen Vanuga credits this to a deep-rooted land ethic and connection to the land that is part of the history of landscape and community in the Dubois area – one that she highlighted in a feature article entitled “Defining Our Landscape”, published in the May 2014 Centennial Edition of the Dubois Frontier. Bar B Bar Ranch 1A In July of 2014, the Land Trust accepted an easement on a 37-acre property in the Bar B Bar Ranch subdivision as part of a Planned Residential Development transaction with Teton County. The property is located on the west side of the Bar B Bar Ranch along the Snake River, adjacent to other Land Trust easements in the area, and is visible to river recreationalists floating from Grand Teton National Park. As part of the Snake River riparian corridor, it supports habitat for a diversity of wildlife including cutthroat trout, boreal toads, migratory birds, trumpeter swans, and bald eagles. It is important seasonal habitat for elk, moose, and mule deer – with 500 to 600 head of elk mating or staging on or around the property each fall. JHLT Jansen Gunderson ZZYZX Skyline Ranch 4-3 Jonathan Selkowitz Flat Creek Corridor Phase IV The fourth and final phase of the Flat Creek Corridor Protection Project, a multi-year collaboration with the Town of Jackson to protect land on the northwestern side of Snow King Mountain, was completed in November 2013. Through the project, 38 acres of Town-owned property are protected by conservation easements that eliminate residential development and subdivision while allowing public recreation and pathway access. The project area provides important wildlife and riparian habitat for mule deer, moose, cutthroat trout, beavers, red fox, black bears, songbirds, and raptors. It also provides access to Russ Garaman Park and a well-loved network of trails, including Josie’s Ridge and Sink or Swim, that are regularly used by mountain bikers, hikers and runners. In May of 2014, a 3.25 acre lot in the Skyline Ranch subdivision was bequeathed to the Land Trust. A new conservation easement extinguishing development rights and protecting natural and scenic conservation values was placed on the property, which was subsequently sold to an adjoining Skyline Ranch neighbor. The property is surrounded by protected open spaces on all sides, including the Jackson Hole Land Trust’s Indian Springs Ranch conservation easement and The Nature Conservancy’s Skyline and Crane Creek Ranch easements. Highly visible on the Skyline Ridge hillside from Highway 22, just south of the recognizable “notch”, it is part of an ecological transition zone linking meadows and wetlands to the east and Snake River cottonwood forests to the west. Leine Stikkel Sledrunner SW A 40-acre property in the Hoback Ranches – a rural subdivision outside of Bondurant, WY that represents a narrow corridor of private land between Bridger-Teton National Forest and Bureau of Land Management lands – was protected in December 2013. Its diverse mix of vegetation, including wetlands, open meadows, sagebrush grasslands, and mixed hardwood and conifer forests, provides habitat for elk, moose, mule deer, and raptors. The easement on the property was donated by Glenn Paulson and Linda Cooper. Located near several other Jackson Hole Land Trust-protected parcels in the Hoback Ranches, it helps to secure ecological connectivity between adjacent public lands. A pristine 38-acre property bordered by Grand Teton National Park to the northwest was protected in September 2014 by a donated easement that eliminates all development rights – essentially creating a preserve for fish and wildlife in the ecologically-rich Snake River riparian corridor. The channels and wetlands of the Snake River form a mosaic over the property free from the man-made influence of levees and irrigation diversions, supporting Snake River fine-spotted cutthroat trout and sensitive species such as spotted frogs and boreal toads. The area is a key mating, staging, parturition, and migration area for elk that winter on the National Elk Refuge, and also provides important habitat for migratory songbirds, mule deer, moose, and large carnivores. The East Gros Ventre Butte Phase 1 property is described on the previous page. Land, then, is not merely soil; fountain of energy it is a flowing through a circuit of soils, plants, and animals. Byrd Draw, by Stephen Jay Lunsford JHLT One such project, initiated in FY14, protects critical winter habitat for bighorn sheep, mule deer, and antelope along the Wind River at the base of the Dubois Badlands. Completed in the early part of FY15, the project is evidence of the potential for landowner-motivated conservation in Wind River country. 7 WILSON Rd Cre ek Fish 390 TETON VILLAGE 22 Grand Teton National Park Bridger-Teton National Forest 89 Ve ntr e Rd 26 189 Sublette County Gros Ventre Gr os Buffalo Valley Rd 89 191 DUBOIS State of WY & WGFD National Elk Refuge JHLT 2014 Protected Properties Sledrunner SW | 40 acres Protected since December 2013 Open Space • Wildlife • Scenic Forest Service Lands JHLT Protected Properties BLM Lands Grand Teton National Park Fremont County Flat Creek Corridor Phase IV | 4 acres Protected since November 2013 Open Space • Wildlife • Scenic • Public Access East Gros Ventre Butte Phase I | 181 acres Protected since November 2013 Open Space • Wildlife • Scenic Bar B Bar Ranch 1A | 37 acres Protected since July 2014 Open Space • Wildlife • Scenic ZZYZX | 38 acres Protected since September 2014 Open Space • Wildlife • Scenic Where We Work 26 HOBACK JUNCTION 26 Buffalo Valley 26 National Elk Refuge Bridger-Teton National Forest JACKSON 191 191 89 26 is a useless waste; to others, a blank place on the map the most valuable part.

Like Aldo Leopold, we recognize the great service to conservation made by our landowner partners. They are the daily stewards of protected open spaces that maintain the conservation values of their land for the benefit of the wildlife and people of northwestern Wyoming. Leopold put stock in the land ethic of those that live on the land, noting in his 1939 essay, The Farmer as a Conservationist, that “the landscape of any farm is the owner’s portrait of himself”, and “when land does well for its owner, and the owner does well by his land; when both end up better by reason of their partnership, we have conservation.” 1. Our stewardship staff and board-based Stewardship Committee are the primary interface with this active, reciprocal conservation, observed and renewed each year through our annual monitoring program and other points of contact. The annual visit with landowners and ranch managers is a chance to walk the land together, observe and record natural or human-made changes, discuss interesting wildlife observations, consider stewardship matters, and build upon longterm relationships. In 2014, stewardship staff, board members, and Open Space Council members visited each protected property, monitoring 208 easement areas and interacting with 125 landowner contacts. We also sought to model good stewardship on the Land Trust’s fee simple lands, much of which are leased to working ranches. 2. Bob Peters to practice it on one’s own land? Jansen Gunderson 1. In its second year, the artists of the View22: Painting Jackson Hole’s Open Spaces Project raised awareness and appreciation for the wildlife, scenic, and community benefits of land conservation through plein air painting demos, an interactive online blog, and a fundraising art show. Kay Northup, Lee Riddell, and Travis Walker joined returning artists Jennifer Hoffman, Bill Sawczuk, and Kathryn Turner to paint 17 Land Trust protected properties. than Our communications strategies and outreach initiatives reach thousands of Land Trust supporters and community members each year, in person and online. By connecting people with the impact and meaning of our work, we hope to inspire a literacy for protecting, stewarding, and relating to the land. 3. 5. Red Rock Ranch by Kay Northup, View22 Project “Conservation... is keeping the resource in working order, as well as preventing over-use. Resources may get out of order before they are exhausted, sometimes while they are still abundant. Conservation, therefore, is a positive exercise of skill and insight, not merely a negative exercise of abstinence or caution,” Leopold also observed. In addition to annual monitoring, our stewardship team is tasked with responding to an increased frequency of inquiries and requests for project approvals related to land use changes. The Land Trust’s priority is to evaluate project proposals from a legal perspective – carefully interpreting the easement language and anticipating how proposed changes align with the scenic, wildlife, community, and ranching values of the property – often a thoughtful exercise of skill, insight, and communication. The relationships cultivated over time with landowners serve as a valuable backdrop to these communications and are the past, present, and future of our stewardship program. What more substantial service to conservation Communications and Outreach 2. Our Open Space Council members serve as ambassadors of the Land Trust’s work, creating deeper outreach and engagement within the community. We welcomed 9 new members to the Council, with an emphasis on representation from young professionals in the community. Council members assisted with monitoring visits, attended events, and identified new opportunities for outreach. 7. TravelStorysGPS JenTen Productions 4. 6. Mack Mendenhall 3. Throughout the year, our projects, initiatives, and events including the East Gros Ventre Butte Project, View22 Project, TravelStorysGPS Smartphone App, JHLT Annual Picnic, Skyline Ranch 4-3 Project, and Centennial Events received visibility and attention in local, regional, and national newspapers and magazines. 4. We continued to grow our online communications, with news, information, and inspiration shared through our website and emails. We increased our social media presence and engagement on the JH Land Trust and View22 Facebook and Instagram pages and participated in our first #GivingTuesday social media campaign. 8. Our Park by Jennifer L. Hoffman, View22 Project David Swift 5. We connected with over 4,000 community members by hosting or participating in events including the View22 reception and painting demos, open houses, Ecofair, Teton Food Tour, and Old Bill’s Fun Run. We celebrated the Town of Jackson’s Centennial through the Barn Bash screening of JenTen Production’s film, A Treasure Hidden in Plain Sight: The Moseley/ Hardeman Barn. 6. Our 34th Annual Picnic, hosted by the Oliver family at the 4 Lazy F Ranch, was attended by over 600 community members on a beautiful August afternoon. Guests enjoyed music by Jess Camilla O’Neal and the Neversweat Players, View22 painting demos, a flighted raptor demo, and a speaking program honoring Bert Raynes for his many contributions to the valley’s wildlife. land as a community to which we belong, 7. TravelStorysGPS v2.0 was released in the fall, with a new and intuitively easy interface and several new tours in and around Jackson Hole and Wyoming. The Land Trust’s Highway 22 Tour was completely reimagined for version 2.0 of the app, with new and updated stories and photos. 8. In 2011, the Land Trust played a leading role in securing and acquiring the land for Rendezvous “R” Park – and has been involved as a conservation partner since then. In September, we joined over 1,000 community members, partners, and View22 artists at the R Park and Snake River Bridge Opening Celebration to herald the opening of these highly-anticipated community amenities. When we see we may begin to use it with love and respect.

The Summit Circle was established to recognize these committed donors who have given consistently to the Land Trust. Gifts of any amount count toward participation and are greatly appreciated. Participation in the Summit Circle means being a part of a special community of donors dedicating to shaping the future of Jackson Hole. The Land Trust than ks you, our Summit Circle donors, for your steadfast commitment to our work. Regardless of how much you choose to give, the impact of your continued giving is powerful and does not go unnoticed.
