To promote the relevance and role of the geosciences in human activities.
Function and View
We are non-governmental, without an inherent
bias or agenda: that is, a neutral scientific entity.
We build partnerships to solve problems, and create solutions
through cooperation, knowledge and persistence.
We welcome all individuals and organizations into the continual
quest for information and the process by which knowledge is made to help humans and our environment.
Our funding is primarily through the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole and its incredible
Each year the Foundation is provided with the
opportunity to raise funds with the network administered by the Community Foundation for and by the members of the Jackson
Hole Community. Our programs fund geoeducation in the primary school grades and advances geoscience education for the
general public with specific information on Yellowstone and its volcanic activity, the Teton fault, and life in a geologically
active area--western Wyoming. In 2009 we began sponsoring a yearly Distinguished Lecture Program. The first lecture
featured Peter Ward, PhD. a former U.S.G.S. volcanologist who presented a groundbreaking theory that SO2 not CO2 is the atmospheric
gas driving global climate change.
