The purpose of the Jackson Hole Bird & Nature Club is to promote interest in the study of birds, wildlife and natural history in Jackson Hole and the Greater Yellowstone Area. We strive to increase enjoyment and knowledge of nature through programs and opportunities to observe the wildlife around us.

We were founded over forty years ago by a small group of local citizens. Since the founding of the original club, we have grown from a handful of people meeting in the basement of a local bank to a vital part of the Teton County’s conservation community.
We currently have over 400 subscribers to our email newsletter. All of our programs are free and everyone is welcome.
The Jackson Hole Bird & Nature Club continues to inspire people to enjoy, learn about, and act to protect birds and other wildlife that make Jackson Hole a special place. Our monthly programs bring in nationally known experts and knowledgeable locals.
We also sponsor the annual Christmas Bird Count, which has been going on in Jackson Hole since 1970.
We offer help in identifying birds and information about how to keep birds healthy at feeders and thriving in the wild. We actively engage with our conservation partners and encourage people to support their efforts.
We are an informal group, led and organized by volunteers.
