Protect the Hoback River from Natural Gas Development


Not far from Jackson Hole, the Hoback River is treasured for its clean water, spectacular scenery, and thriving native cutthroat trout fishery.

But natural gas drilling in the river’s headwaters threatens the Hoback and local residents with toxic pollution.

Unless the Forest Service prepares a new environmental analysis and develops a true conservation alternative that fully protects the river, the Hoback will lose its unique wild character and local citizens could face serious health risks.

Take Action:
The Forest Service Supervisor Jackqueline Buchanan to protect the Hoback River from natural gas fracking.
