Conservation Funds Survive Wyo House

A bill before the Wyoming House that would provide funding for large conservation projects has been passed along to the Senate for consideration there.  House Bill 81 entitled “Large Project Funding” includes two provisions that affect Jackson Hole.  $600-thousand is being appropriated for a 300 acre conservation easement on Munger Mountain, south of Jackson and appropriates another $600-thousand toward the purchase of a 413 acre conservation easement on East Gros Ventre Butte. The bill survived at least two attempts to kill it or render it useless.  Teton County’s State Representative Keith Gingery had worked with many of his colleagues back in 2005 to set up and fund the Wildlife Natural Resource Fund for Wyoming. The Fund has since been used over the last 8 years to improve wildlife habitat across the state. Every year, all large projects being funded by the Wildlife Natural Resource Fund must be brought before the Wyoming Legislature for funding.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
