35th Anniversary Celebration

Jackson Hole Conservation Alliance 35th Anniversary Celebration
Celebrating our local roots. Connecting the wHole community.

Purchase your benefit tickets online now!

We’re proud of our roots. Jackson Hole’s conservation legacy includes the contributions of many people acting individually and collectively to strengthen those roots. Every act has mattered, and the Jackson Hole Conservation Alliance is proud of the role we have played in connecting people as we’ve worked together to build a strong, wild, and beautiful community for 35 years.
As we celebrate our 35th year, we want to recognize the locals who form our roots in the “wHole” through their everyday actions. 
We received over 100 nominations of individuals who are making a difference in ways both large and small. It was incredibly challenging to narrow down this inspiring list, and we worked hard to select a representative group of 13 people who exemplify the diverse range of people working to create a better future for Jackson Hole. 
Click here to read about the individuals we will honor for their essential contributions to the “wHole” through a free video showcase at our 35th anniversary celebration event, on Sunday, September 21 at the Center for the Arts at 7:00pm.
We look forward to celebrating our roots with you, and thank you for all you do to enhance this wild and beautiful community!
The Alliance will celebrate with friends and patrons its 35 years of roots in Jackson Hole with a celebration earlier in the evening including cocktails, dinner on stage and a silent and live auction.  You can buy tickets to the benefit event through our website now.
