If you are familiar with Emily’s Pond and the dike, then you are familiar with BLM Parcels 9 and 10. You most likely visit this area to take a stroll with your dog, fish the river bank, bike and/or nordic ski. These BLM parcels are an easy, convenient and popular recreation spot centrally located in our community.
Do you know a transfer for this public land is underway to Teton County? Do you know you the public owns more than just the levee? You own access to approximately 2.5 miles, 320 total acres of public land, and over 200 acres of cottonwood forest. You should be part of this discussion.
Snake River Fund and Teton County/Jackson Parks and Recreation are asking the public to participate in creating a community vision for these parcels. Teton County/Jackson Parks and Recreation has already hosted three open houses for the purpose of creating a master plan. It’s not too late to join the discussion. Email your comments to Snake River Fund, Teton County/Jackson Parks and Recreation, and our County Commissioners.
