Jackson Hole touts trout friendly lawns

August 30, 2019by ncdea

WYOMING, Teton CD – Across Teton County, signs featuring small metal fish are beginning to poke up from the lawns of homes and businesses.

The colorful, steel trout-shaped signs can be seen at Shooting Star, Snake River Brewing, Town Square and, perhaps, in your neighbor’s yard. They mean that whoever is responsible for the grass underneath has signed up for the “Trout Friendly Lawns Program,” which commits them to landscaping practices that minimize water pollution.

“A lot of people just want to feel like they’re doing the right thing for the waterways,” said Leslie Steen of Trout Unlimited. “They get that eventually what they put on their lawns will end up in the stream.”

The lawn program…originated with the Jackson Hole Clean Water Coalition, which includes Trout Unlimited, the Teton Conservation District, Friends of Fish Creek and several other organizations. Collectively, they aim to keep the region’s water as natural and clean as possible.
