Jackson Hole Wildlife Safaris joins a growing group of businesses and organizations including the Elk Refuge Inn, Flat Creek Ranch, Jackson Lake Lodge, Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce, and Jackson Hole Airport to achieve third-party sustainability certification by the Riverwind Foundation, the originator of the BEST program.
