Written by on May 25, 2023

Wyoming State Parks, in partnership with the Bureau of Reclamation, is hosting several opportunities to engage with the resource management planning process for Buffalo Bill Reservoir and State Park.

Three meetings have been scheduled between June 1 and 2 at various places in Cody.

Each meeting will present ideas for balancing conservation and recreation at the reservoir and park. They will also provide the public with opportunities to express their ideas, questions, and concerns to the consultant team as well as staff from both The Bureau of Reclamation and Wyoming State Parks.

“The Buffalo Bill Reservoir and State Park Resource Management Plan is intended to be a 20-year plan for the park, providing the foundation for decision-making to accommodate recreation and visitor amenities in balance with the preservation of recreation settings and natural and cultural resources,” said Nick Neylon, deputy director of the Division of State Parks & Outdoor Recreation Office.

The public is invited to attend the following scheduled events:

  • “Books with Bill” at the Park County Library’s Grizzly Room
    • Thursday, June 1, 2023, 4:30-7:30 p.m.
  • “Brews with Bill” at Cody Craft Brewing
    • Thursday, June 1, 2023, 6:30-9:00 p.m.
  • “Beans with Bill” at The Station by Cody Coffee
    • Friday, June 2, 2023, 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

Materials from the public meetings will also be available online; the public can leave feedback by visiting the Buffalo Bill State Park website.

The final Resource Management Plan will be subject to a federal environmental assessment.
