Greater Yellowstone Coalition talks recreation and conservation

JACKSON, WY— How do we share the wild spaces on which we love to recreate without loving them to death?

That question is at the heart of the Greater Yellowstone Coalition’s upcoming presentations “What the Rec? A Discussion about Recreation in Greater Yellowstone.”

As more and more people tune into the wonders of outdoor recreation, they often congregate in the same spaces, in search of the same opportunities. The challenge now is maintaining access to these spaces while also taking care of them. The Greater Yellowstone Coalition has spent this past year taking inventory on recreation in Greater Yellowstone in search of a solution.

Greater Yellowstone Coalition believes the first step toward building a shared vision for the future of recreation in this special region is a common understanding. They have been working to understand the challenges and opportunities at the intersection of conservation and recreation in Greater Yellowstone.

There are two chances to hear about what they have learned: Thursday, March 15 at 6:30 in the Teton County Library Auditorium, then again Friday March 16 at noon at the Driggs library. Teton County Library will provide snacks, and Driggs Library will provide a brown bag lunch, but asks attendees to RSVP.

Read more about the project here, and learn more about “Our Shared Place: The Present and Future of Recreation in Greater Yellowstone,” a symposium GYC is co-hosting with Montana State University April 23-24.
