The National Park Service Connected Conservation (C2) webinar mini-series continues this week with the ninth installment: The Mountain Neighbor Handbook: A Local’s Guide to Stewardship in the Tetons on Tuesday, March 7, at 2:00 p.m. (ET) (the webinar is now available as a recording). Learn how individuals can help nature conservation by living more sustainably, volunteering, recreating responsibly, and motivating one another to take conservation actions.
The webinar will highlight this community-focused handbook, which was released in October 2022 and was created by Wyoming’s Teton County, the Town of Jackson, Teton Conservation District, and the Jackson Hole Land Trust. The publication serves as an introduction and an invitation to environmental stewardship.
We’ll have five presenters involved with the project:
- Phoebe Coburn, Communications Specialist, Teton Conservation District
- Carlin Girard, Executive Director, Teton Conservation District
- Chris Colligan, Project Manager, Teton County, WY
- Max Ludington, President, Jackson Hole Land Trust
- Chip Jenkins, Superintendent, Grand Teton National Park
