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.

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.

Forever Our Valley:
A Land Ethic in Action
That land is a community is the basic concept of ecology,
but that
land is to be loved and respected
is an extension of ethics. 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.
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.

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
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.

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.”
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.

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.
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.
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.

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.

and attention in local, regional, and national newspapers and
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.

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.

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.

Annual Fund
Support from our Annual Fund donors allows the Jackson Hole Land Trust to further our mission of protecting open space and the scenic, ranching, and
wildlife values of Jackson Hole. Contributions to the Annual Fund directly support the implementation of land protection strategies, completion of high
priority land protection projects, and the stewardship processes necessary to protect the conservation values of existing easement protected properties
in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. We are grateful for the gifts we received for the Annual Fund from the following donors between October 1, 2013

The Summit Circle
Loyalty matters. Over 139 remarkable donors have demonstrated their loyalty to the Land Trust by renewing
their annual gift for the past 20 or more consecutive fiscal years. 41 of the exceptional donors in the Summit
Circle have given for 25 or more fiscal consecutive years. 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.
Various allocations of gifts have been recognized for the initial listing in the Summit Circle. In the future,
participation will be sustained as long as unrestricted gifts to the annual fund are made to the Land Trust
every fiscal year without interruption.

*We are honored to recognize
support from donors who are no
longer with us, but have made a
permanent impact through their
years of generosity.
The Teton Legacy Society of the Jackson Hole Land Trust was formed
in order to celebrate the individuals with the foresight and generosity to
make a life income or bequest provision for the Jackson Hole Land
Trust. Benefits of this lifetime membership include not only the
knowledge that you have helped secure the future of this valley but
invitations to exclusive events, special field trips and annual recognition.
With a planned charitable gift to the Teton Legacy Society, you can
protect the future landscape of this valley while also fulfilling your
own financial goals. Speak to your financial advisor or call the Land
Trust to discuss the giving strategy that is right for you.
