Representatives from the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce were on hand to celebrate the Bridger-Teton National Forest ribbon cutting and open house for the new Forest Office on Wednesday. Speakers included Senator John Barrasso and Forest Supervisor Tricia O'Connor. Smokey Bear also made an appearance!
Chamber President/CEO Anna Olson commented, “The new Forest Office is an important economic hub for Jackson Hole. It’s rewarding to celebrate the accomplishment that required strong partnerships and community support.”
Located near downtown Jackson at 340 N. Cache, the building is home to the Bridger-Teton National Forest Supervisor’s Office and to the Jackson Ranger District Office. It's the central hub for seven districts and 40-50 employees. Visitors are welcome to tour the new, environmentally friendly building. See https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/btnf/about-forest/offices.
