Tech Support Needed!

Jackson Hole Bird & Nature Club and Teton Plants Need Your Volunteer Help!

At live programs on 2nd Tuesday each month

In order to present live programs and Zoom them simultaneously we need two people (and two computers) to run the Library's projection system and remotely co-host the Zoom.


Without your help, some programs may be live only or Zoom only or possibly not be given at all.

Jackson Hole Bird & Nature Club Presentations

December 2012 through January 2023

Since 1977 the University of Wyoming and the National Park Service have jointly operated the UW-NPS Research Station at the AMK Ranch off the Leek's Marina road in Grand Teton National Park. Each summer they host programs by faculty and students on research mostly conducted in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. 


Many of the programs from past years may be viewed online here.


Here are a few examples of the wonderful collection of presentations:


Restoring Sagebrush in Jackson Hole


GYE Grizzly Bear Recovery


Past, Present, & Future Climate Change in GYE Watersheds


The Secret Lives of Mountain Lion Kittens - (this is amazing work by Panthera!)


Anatomy of Old Faithful and Yellowstone - (by Dr. Bob Smith, the dean of GYE geologists)


Teton Alpine Streams: Unsung Heroes of Diversity


and LOTS more!
