The time is now to Protect our Water, Jackson Hole!

Nutrient pollution is one of America’s most widespread, costly and challenging environmental problems, and it's also becoming prevalent in Jackson Hole. It's caused by excess nitrogen and phosphorus entering water from a wide range of human activities. Too much nitrogen and phosphorus in the water causes algae to grow faster than ecosystems can handle, resulting in a myriad of negative impacts.
