Why the Wild Neighborhoods Website?
Taken together, wildlife conflict and wildfire risk pose separate but related threats to living in Jackson Hole. The Wild Neighborhoods website brings together information from diverse sources and serves as a one-stop shop that makes it easy for homeowners to know what measures they can take to reduce wildlife conflicts and prepare for wildfire.
The challenge of getting information about sensible measures acts as a disincentive to people who may be inclined to live in balance with nature. The Wild Neighborhoods program will take advantage of this situation and work to communicate and engage homeowners (new and old) in Teton County about ways in which they can reduce wildlife conflicts and prepare for wildfire.
