This community conservation property is located on the southwest-facing slopes of High School Butte. It is an important refuge for wildlife, including mule deer crucial winter range, above the light and noise from an increasingly dense residential area and will be subject to winter wildlife closures. Accessible from the classic High School Butte switchbacks on the adjacent property owned by the Teton County School District, the conservation of this parcel will also safeguard public access to open space in the heart of Jackson. Working within a conservation-oriented management plan, the JHLT will perform erosion mitigation to address existing social trails and a rudimentary double-track, work to eliminate invasive plants, and create a low impact loop trail for the community to enjoy.
