Wyoming Wilderness Association Dubois Office
In early 2011, the Wyoming Wilderness Association opened new office doors in Dubois, to focus on the special wild places on the Shoshone National Forest. The Shoshone Forest Plan Revision Process (learn more here) is underway, and this revised land management forest plan will guide the management of the forest for the next 10-15 years. Public participation in this process is important, and YOU have an opportunity to help protect these public lands for future generations, wildlife, and backcountry recreation opportunities. To learn how you can be more involved, contact Sara at 307-455-2246 or stop by the office at 132 East Ramshorn, Unit 4 in Dubois. For information about the Shoshone Forest Plan, contact Shoshone Forest Planning staff Carrie Christman at 307-578-5118 or email email@example.com.
UW ENR seminar features WWA's Shoshone Wildlands Director Sara Domek!
The University of Wyoming recently hosted the panel on Wilderness in Wyoming: Perception, Politics and Status. Conversations about these important issues are confronting misconceptions and leading to a new era of wilderness preservation in Wyoming. This seminar is available for viewing online by clicking here.
It’s time for the next step:
For years, folks from all walks of life have found common cause keeping Wyoming’s wild places the way they are. By bringing together ranchers, sportsmen, outfitters, recreationists, and conservationists, we have an opportunity to protect what we all love about the Shoshone-continued access to renowned hunting and fishing, healthy landscapes full of wildlife, and a Wyoming way of life.
The Shoshone National Forest offers world-class hunting, fishing, tourism, and recreation opportunities. Roadless areas on this forest provide critical habitat for big-game species, including Bighorn sheep and elk. All species depend upon the protections provided by the 34 inventoried roadless areas on the Shoshone. To keep these areas the way they are, without shutting down any roads, some areas should be recommended for wilderness. WWA does not advocate that all roadless areas on the Shoshone National Forest should become wilderness, but those with qualified primitive values including wildlife habitat, water quality protection, and backcountry recreation, should be protected.
