Our waterways are the foundation of a healthy ecosystem

Most of the water in the Snake River is not in the visible river channel - it's in the gravel. Gravel-bed river floodplains support an extraordinary biodiversity of life. Clean water is the foundation of this ecosystem. These species have been disproportionately affected by human infrastructure and activities. Protecting our water is vital to protecting a healthy ecosystem - from Bugs to Bears.

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.
