Game and Fish Meeting Friday Focuses on Wildlife Plan
Written by Andrew-Rossi on February 6, 2018
A meeting in Cody this Friday will allow members of the public to chart a path for the future of Wyoming’s Wildlife.
The Wyoming Game and Fish Department’s project to gather public input regarding the state’s wildlife plan is continuing with a series of public meetings. A random telephone survey of residents and nonresidents started in January, but officials say that the issue is of high importance, so they are offering several different methods of gathering information. The public meetings are a part of this effort, as is an online forum.
The public meetings are taking place around the state all week, and will be run by a third party facilitator. The meeting in the Big Horn Basin will be will take place in Cody on Friday, February 9th from 6 until 9 PM at the Governor’s Room at the Irma Hotel.
The last time this kind of project took place was over 20 years ago, and out of that process came the Access Yes program, which has allowed public access to previously inaccessible lands.
