About the DSC

The core DSC members currently include Grand Teton National Park, Yellowstone National Park, Bridger-Teton National Forest, Jackson Town Council, Teton County Commissioners, Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, JH AIR, and the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole.

How can I get involved?

The DSC meetings are open for public observation. Meetings are currently held in the Ordway Auditorium of the Teton County Library on the fourth Thursday of the month from 11:00 am – 12:30 pm. Since this is an independent working group and not a formal meeting, the DSC will not be taking public comment. Formal public comment is accepted at JHTTB monthly meetings on the second Thursday of the month at 3:00 pm at the Town Hall – Council Chambers.
