Karns Meadow and Journeys School

During the month of June 2018, the Jackson Hole Land Trust, Journeys School of Teton Science Schools, and Teton County Parks and Recreation Department partnered on a Wild/Human Interface Unit focusing on Karns Meadow. Thirty students grounded their investigation on the question, “How do we navigate the wild/human interface where we live?” by examining Karns Meadow through many lenses. The project culminated in an event on Monday, June 11, 2018, in which students shared their work with peers and community members at Karns Meadow. Projects included an overlaying of plant maps to see how different plant species interact, examining the health of macroinvertebrates, and a thought exercise that asked “what if there was no conservation easement on Karns Meadow?” The Land Trust is committed to re-energizing this in town gem for people to experience conservation and open space in the heart of Jackson Hole.
