OUR MISSION

To serve as a powerful advocate for reducing nutrient pollution and protecting water quality in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, now, and for the future.
 

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 a myriad of negative impacts affecting human health, the environment, and the economy.

  • To have something happening here that is changing the character of the stream just doesn't seem right in a community like Jackson Hole.
