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.

  • Don’t commercialize hunting - November 20, 2014
    The state of New Jersey is dealing with a huge whitetail deer overpopulation problem. To get more people to get out and hunt those deer, and hopefully bring the population down to a more manageable level, the state is toying with the idea of allowing the commercial sale of meat from wild deer. It’s a […]
