Organizers Unveil “SHIFT”

4JH

Organizers of a new conservation event in Jackson Hole that has been partially funded by the Jackson Hole Travel and Tourism Board have announced its new name.  “SHIFT” is to be a conservation festival broadly focusing on those things that are the root causes of the environment’s current state of affairs.  Event Director Christian Beckwith explains it is the organizers’ goal to benefit the community in ways that honor our ecosystem and leverage Jackson’s conservation heritage into global solutions for the 21st century.  At the same time, Beckwith explains that the event is still in its infancy and organizers are engaging multiple conservation communities within the valley to help create better definition for the October event.   Quoting Beckwith, “We need to develop items as basic as our focus and mission statement, as well as brand-building essentials: a logo, a website, our social channels.”  Beckwith adds that the plan is to start with Aldo Leopold’s definition of conservation as a state of harmony between men and land, and building the event from there.

  • Don’t lose your vision in the woods - October 21, 2014
    I don’t have good eyes. Had I been born a hundred years ago, there would have been no help for me. Glasses can’t help me, so I’d have blind. I have to wear a special kind of contact lens, which wasn’t available in the days of Davey Crockett and Daniel Boone. But through the miracle […]
  • Hunters must be conservationists first - October 20, 2014
    As hunters, it’s our responsibility to take care of the critters we hunt, as well as those we don’t. We have to obey the game laws. Police ourselves to be sure others respect the wildlife.
