“A skilled naturalist, defender of nature, and believer in the power of conservation and democracy, Bert Raynes gently urges us, young and old, to believe we can make a difference.”

Todd Wilkinson, Environmental Journalist and Author

“Bert is the personification of conservation in Jackson Hole. He is the connective tissue binding Jackson Hole’s extraordinary conservation history to its 21st century future. For 40 years, Bert’s work and passion has been to bring together people and the natural world around them. This aligns perfectly with Charture’s focus on co-thriving, the state in which human communities and the natural environments around them simultaneously flourish.”

Jonathan Schechter, Executive Director of Charture Institute and 1% for the Tetons
